Norway Fishing Report and today was the day that the customers returned home and Paul and I carried on our journey further north to research our three new destinations.
Up and about at half eight, quick tidy round, bags packed and on the way to Badufoss Airport, once we arrived we saw the customers through check in, said our good byes and went to sort out our hire car!
With a suitcase each, large cool box, two laptop bags and bazooka rod tubes, we were just praying that the car would be big enough to fit it all in! As luck had it, it was and we were on road for around eleven thirty. With the SatNav Programmed with the destinations zip code, we sat back and enjoyed the journey through some stunning scenery! Until we actually reached Tromso, I think we only had to make one turning! The roads are virtually traffic free!
We arrived at Tromso/Hansnes at around half three and were greeted by the friendly owners. After some filming and pictures of the accommodation and surroundings, we got invited to dinner for some good old fashioned home cooked Norwegian food!
Thinking we were going to be eating with them in there house, we were surprised when we were told to meet them in the bar! A cracking little room, with Larger on tap, sky TV and a large dinning area, it was perfect after a busy day on the road. The food was absolutely fantastic, fish soup, made with some prime halibut chunks, with loads of crispy bread on the side for good measure! We found out that the lodge will actually cater for anglers, for all meals throughout the day, even supplying packed lunches if required.
After the food, we enjoyed a couple of pints, what we didn’t enjoy was the price, although saying that, it was only the classic Norwegian price, which anyone who’s had a beer in Norway will know, can be very expensive!
We retired back to the lodge for an early night, hoping we might be able to pick up the champions league footie! If we cant its probably best we get some sleep as we have a seven hour drive and one and a half hour ferry crossing to get to the next stop. Once there we have two and a half days to film and fish, fingers crossed we get a few!
