I had a couple of great trips to one the fantastic rivers nearby Gothenburg last week. We had some moments of fantastic fishing on very tricky trout, and I even had my chanses on some sight fishing in shallow water. My lesson learned – never underestimate the eyes of the trout! It may not see you, but this time it was a slight movement on my rod tip that revealed me. Czech out my friend’s brand new trout tattoo! Tight lines!
Good shots, man!
The river looks really beautiful, and that tattoo is over the top!
Anybody know what kind of larvae we´re talking about? Looks like some kind or butterfly, or maybe a moth?
Wow! Now that’s what I’m talking about!
they’re man-eating caterpillars !!!
It is “häggspinnmal”. I´ve just gotten to know them myself by that very same river.
Yep, they eat up all the leaves on a tree, leaving it totally gray. Then they move on to the next one. Lots of big trees were totally devastated. And when I got home the larvae were creeping all over my hat, boots, waders… They’ll probably eat up everything in my neighbourhood now.
…and what is the name of the river, plz? : )
Wow, my previous in-laws lives in GBG and the past two summers i spent a cuople of weeks there. Can’t believe i didn’t check out this beautiful river! I think i know it’s name 😉
