The fish story "Eye to eye with a large trout - the day when the dream became a reality", says Mikael Muster Nordberg if successful fishing in Ösjön with two fishing buddies and his dad.
I still pinch myself in the arm to see that it actually happened in real. But I'll take everything from the beginning. With gasket lady traveled, I and my two friends set off on a fishing trip to Jämtland that I'll never forget.
We arrived at Ösjön 21.30 time on Thursday night and we were eager to get started, There were a few laps around the big island and we were really close to a dream start when I lost a really big fish on a Rapala wobblers, wobblern was unhurt but we sat in the boat was obviously shocked because we had not really anticipated cut it power.
Night came to us and the full moon shined brightly. On Friday morning I managed to fool a beautiful char just over a kilo before it was time to go into the country and strengthen the team in the form of my father. We set out to sea again, and after about an hour, I got my dad and enjoy life when we suddenly got double blow. He rolled into a neighboring trout on 1,2 kg. I did not want to be outdone so I cranked a few seconds later, a really bold char exactly 2 kg.
The fish continued to chop the entire Friday and Saturday and we could finally summarize ratio to 19 fish, 15 char and 4 trout, and it is notable that only two of them weighed over kg limit. The 19:e fish in the order gave me a memory for life, it changed my already lovely view on fishing with dry flies into something even more beautiful and more powerful. We saw a big fish back right on the surface so we stopped the boat and I put out a dry fly.
It only takes a few seconds before Jimmy sees a large trout swimming against my fly and he tells me to be prepared. Suddenly slamming it to the surface and starting my life trout Fight. The whole boat shake off our adrenaline, and as soon we shall lift the trout rushes off. It never seems to want to give up so I was sure that the leader would go off and I would lose the fight with the fish. In the end it was finally in the net and my eyes were filled with tears of joy when I hugged Jimmy and handed out a brotherly kiss on the cheek. I lived my dream and I realized that all stories have a happy ending, for this was probably the last thing that happened on this trip. Trout weighing anyway 3 kg and was caught on a small easy single handed fly rod. It was absolutely fantastic. It was like the movies. I was almost religious, and felt that the gods were on my side this weekend. Amen
