The ­Ditch ­Otters ­– ­Summer ­2021

- A feelgood report from a fishing trio in Vangrøfta

As is tradition, we three ride together. Sigbjørn, Håvard and Olav. It’s just fantastic to come back to this beautiful town with farm animals and feilds around every corner!

The fishing this season was plagued by warm dry weather. The sinking water levels combined with the hot weather made for tough fishing conditions. However, we did find some fish over the course of the trip. Not the biggest, but we had decent fishing.

The fantistic weather made for many fine days and evenings!

The trout in Vangrøfta are beatufil creatures!
“Not one of the largest” began the fishing report – And although we agree, isn’t it really more about the quality of the fish?

Fish camp, coffee on the riverbanks, and transport between fishing spots. All the elements of a proper Ditch Otter fishing trip.
To observe the water and contemplate thouroughly before making a cast is what Vangrøfta was made for. The low water levels and sunny days didn’t make fishing any easier, but that made it even more rewarding when we managed to trick a trout.
A photo speaks it’s own language. A perfect fish on a perfect summer day!

A big thanks to the Ditch Otters Sigbjørn, Håvard and Olav for a nice report from their trip to Vangrøfta this summer. We assume it will not be their last trip to this beautiful river!
