The fish story Laxdrillar hand you have to be with that it does not always go as you had in mind when fishing.
It was a rainy evening when a friend and I decided to go fishing salmon. I was already in the water and fished when he came to the place where we would fish. After throwing a few words to him without receiving any answer, I turned around and saw that he was standing with his back to me and talking on mobile phones.
The moment took a salmon my fly and I cried:
Usually I go up with the salmon to a cove a little above where we fish, but this time I chose to go down to another landing place, which would show itself was an unfortunate decision.
For on the way down the river at a point before the landing gear, I slipped on a stone, which this time was really slippery after all the rain. I and the rod went into the hill, and when I stood up, I noticed that the 2-piece laxspöet had been 3-piece.
After taking up the rod, I noticed that the salmon sat on the fly. Then there arose a problem when I cranked up the rope pulled the cord into the lower broken spödelen and it became tvärstumt, which meant that I could not reel in any line.
Once on the lower landing gear began the salmon to run a little bit and tried to get out into the stream. I slope when a piece among trees and rice to get it in calm water, now that it was unable to reel in the line.
After sitting and waiting for his friend for a moment I thought he must have discovered that I am away even if he did not hear my cry that it was salmon on the hook.
Imagine my surprise, he never came so I put down the rod to grab the rope and went down to the riverbanks. Well, Now how will this go? tänkte jag.
I grabbed the leader and drilled into the salmon to the taila, it went well though when it was just so close that I could taila salmon turned and swam out toward the stream. When I released the leader and grabbed hold of the sinker and then grab the leader again to drill into the salmon. This was repeated one six
to seven times before I finally could taila salmon.
Buddy was standing in the water and fished when I came up with a 3-piece rod in one hand and a salmon 6,8 kg in the other hand. He was very surprised that it was now, he had been down twice to the cape to see if I had the fish on the hook. But when I had backed into the trees, he saw me. He had also sought the rope in the air, revealing where they stand, but now when the rod was broken rope was almost along the hill so he never saw a rope in the air.
He told me that he thought I had hidden myself to do something practical joke when he did not see me or any line in the air when he was down to the Cape for the second time.
Now, with hindsight, it was more a fun fishing trip that will be remembered for it is not every time with laxdrillar hand.
