Fly Fishing Photo Gallery 2006. Grayling, Brown Trout, Fly Fishers

Fishing pictures. Photo gallery from Gjerfloen Flyfishing, Norway. Fly fishers and fishermen, photos of grayling, brown trout, arctic char, whitefish, pike and other "shots" of interest. (English only)

Erik Eikre

As fishing guide and riverkeeper I spend a lot of time by the riverside and the camara is always with me. I therefore have many opportunities to take good "shots" of fishing situations, fishermen, catches and nature from and around the Gjerfloen fly zone area.

The photo gallery page will contain updated pictures of fishermen and catches from Gjerfloen Flyfishing and other pictures of interest from Trysil.


NYMPHS, a real challenge for fly tiers (and others...)

This kind of mussle is very rare in the Trysil river, but there are a few and they can be up to 300 years old! Please let them live and don't take them out of the water. This one was found here in 2002. If you find one of them, please report to me.

Flyfishing in this temperature might indicate that the fisherman should visit a psycologist the sooner the better! However, I landed 7 graylings during a short session.

Do you wonder what a grayling fishing guide does when he is on holiday? FISHING of course!!! Salmon this time.


The salmon above was hooked with this special version of GREY HERON size 6.

Full dressed salmon flies are not always necessary.


This one fell for a Hares Ear size 10!

Selfmade czech nymph: Gjerfloen Pink Flash. Hook: Knapek Czeh Nymph size 10, Hends Body Strech 635, Hends Hare Dubbing 14 and Oracle Cactus Chenille pink. This nymph has also given me many nice graylings. Another successful version, Gjerfloen Green Flash, is tied with Cactus Chenille grey. Not very beautiful, but what does it matter...??

The Danica started hatching today! The graylings were there to meet them and some of them also happened to take an artificial imitation.


Just before landing.


Peter Slepicka, Sweden, was on the right place at the right time! Here on the upper part of the flyzone. This 40 cms grayling grabbed his dryfly in the first cast!

Peter Slepicka

Later in the evening I was guiding Hans Jürgen Heise, Hamburg on the west bank of the flyzone. The Danica hatching was over for the day and no risings were observed, but this brown trout (37 cms) möchte gern eine Nymphe haben!

Hans Jürgen Heise

Later a 38 cms grayling also was too much tempted by a green nymph. This one was tagged in September 2005 on the same location and had the same lenght today.

I landed a 40 cms grayling with a green nymph. This one I had tagged the 11th of September 2001 on the same place. At that time it was 29 cms.
