Guiding in the Oslo area

2. mai 2006

If you are a foreigner visiting the Oslo area, and would like to try some flyfishing, we have a limited number of guiding days available. The fishing will be within a 2 hour drive from Oslo. The type of flyfishing will depend on the season. Sea run brown trout in saltwater, northern pike, trout in lakes or rivers, sea bass etc will be possible.

Sømme-puppa (Soemme-pupae)

11. okt 2009

Sømme-puppa is an imitation of a swimming caddis pupa. We had great success with this fly during a caddis hatch where different flies were refused. The hatching caddis had swimming pupaes that were taken swimming in the surface film. Superpuppa is usually a good fly to use during these conditions, but I was outfished by Kjell Sømme using his new fly when using Superpuppa and other caddis imitations. Feedback from other fishermen having tried Sømme-puppa with great success, and our own experience using this fly under different conditions, makes this a fly we recomend trying during all caddis hatches.

Paddlers. Ole Anton, Jon Erling, Peter, Tor Egil, Kai, Kjell and Pål.


We started the trip just below The Great Lakes. The camp is about 2 km below the lake. For 3 days we were fishing from the camp and up to the lake. The first part of the river out of the lake has been good for the last 3 years, with hatches and rising fish. The spring was delayed this year, and almost nothing was green. The temperature in the river was from 6-10 degrees. In spite of this we had plenty of fish rising to small caddis and some midges, and we had fun dry fly fishing. Flies used were Rackelhanan, Tri-Caddis, Elk Hair Caddis and Streaking Caddis. We caught several trout above 2 kg and many between 1 and 2 kg. At this camp we were lucky enough to see a polar fox. Reindeer was around us every day at this camp.

We left rising fish to paddle on to Camp 2, a beautiful camp site at the outlet from Torismanjavri, or Lake Peter as we also call it. The trip down the river was easy, and this year we were able to paddle or line the canoes down all the rapids. We passed a stretch of the river with a small hatch of mayflies, and later regretted not camping there to see what would happen.

At Camp 2 we fished from the lake down about 4 km to what Pål calls The 5 Finger Rapids, an easy trip in a canoe. There are several interesting parts of the river on this stretch. And just below the rapid we have had excellent fishing. We had no hatches this time, and the fishing was blind fishing with large dry Streaking Caddis or Streamers. The fishing was good, but we had hoped for hatches. It was very windy all the time. On night it calmed down and Kjell went out on the lake and found some char eating midges along a foam line. He caught 3 nice char before the wind picked up again, the largest almost 2.5 kg.

We had very variable weather during the week with cold nights. The water temperature got up to 12 degrees towards the end of the week.

Fly fishing is a fascinating form of fishing. Small, almost weightless artificial ”bait”, the thing we call a fly, is presented for the fish, hoping it will mistake it for the real thing. Se portfolio »

Most of the canoes you see, zig zag along on the water in slow motion, and if you watch them from the shore it is almost impossible to tell where they are heading. Se portfolio »
