Opening day at Bolstad

This fantastic river met us low and quite warm. The clear blue sky without clouds did not help us either. It was a tough opening day with only 3 landed fish. Best was Björns fantastic 30 lbs that took a small orange fly while retrieving. Warm river means fast fly! Both big fish was females and both where wild fish coming from the natural spawning grounds in the river. Myself I manage to tease two fish, one pulled me slightly and one just nailed that Green Samurai but didn’t stay on – that was shit! Conditions are tough and there are very few fish running, I guess the fishing will not turn on before we get some rain - hmm next few days are going to be blue skies only! Tough but only to enjoy the days here on one of the most classic rivers of them all!
