Big Mayflies, Big Trout and Big Horses

Ahhh. Sometimes, life above the arctic circle is just so… good.
Sunny weather, green fields, snowcapped mountains, and huge amounts of Ephemera vulgata mayflies hatching. What more can you ask for?

I only caught one single fish today, but it was a really good one, a 2,4 kg (5,3 lb) wild brown trout on the dry fly.
Now: celebrating with a chilled Chablis before going up to the mountains tomorrow. I have a date with my favourite fish – the arctic char. I´ll probably fail miserably as ususal – there´s a reason they call it the permit of the north – but right now, that doesn´t matter at all.

Good times!

H.
