    The week that we spent in Torvag Harvisk, Norway was Very Enjoyable. We had fair weather for the time that we were there and were able to get out in open water all but the first day. We were able to take fish from Sea Teufel/Sea Devil, Stein Beisser/Sea Wolf, Koehler/Sealachs, Dorsch/Cod and Heilbutt. What is shown in the photos are a 44 kilo Heilbutt, and Cod fom 14, 13 and 9 kilo. There were Cod caught to 24 kilos and many with 19 kilos and below. We had a Fantastic week and I would reccomend the location to anyone!!!!!!!

    Thank You guys for the flowers!!!!! It was a trip that will remain a Great memory and I am Happy to share the photos. Scott Daw, it is one of the most Beautiful areas that I have ever visited. The people were very friendly and they speek English when they know that you are a visitor. The one restriction that we had to deal with was weight. We were allowed to fly up with 20 kilos of baggage and 26 kilos on the return trip. We had BIG problems with the carrier and this was not negoitable. When you have all of your gear and also the lures (that are lead), you are quickly overweight. We managed to get there and afterwards, the stress of returning was even higher. I will try to add some other photos tonight. As we are packing for the return to the USA at this time, this is also hectic. Again, if you have the oppertunity to visit this country then by all means GO! Last year we were in Lowen Gard and had more variety of species. This was central Norway on the Western side and the fish were smaller. If you are able to go to the North Cap, it can be a trip of a Lifetime with fish that are larger!!!! JMHO!!

    Fantasic pics. I am glad you shared them. congrats on the catches. You may consider FedEx for shipping your gear to and fro next time. I do that with my clothes if I am flying somewhere. Not sure about country to country rules and reg's, just a thought.

    laidbck111, That is a Good Idea, but they are not CHEEPPPPPPPP! We will deal with the cost when we have the oppertunity to to go back. I know that it will not be soon as we will be in the USA as of 30 Oct. 06. The operators of the Lodge/Resort made an offer to the Gerlinger Angle Sport coordinator that I thought was nice. They offered to provide a locked storage for the gear and each year the firm would return, all the primary requirements would be complete. I think that this would be Fantastic and seemingly so did Rolland. If I am able to return to Germany some day, I will try to GOOOOOOOOOOO Again. OK, enough blabber, on with the photos.

    Nice fish and stories! I'm in Olen right now, which is about 50 km east of Haugesund, I think, Unfortunately, I'm working on rigging up a ship at a shipyard everyday, so haven't gotten to fish very much.

    Scott, if you have family from Bomlo, you don't know if any of them work with Eidesvik, do you. It's probably the biggest business in Bomlo. A shipping company, running mostly oilfied service boats. Bomlo is a quaint little village. No public bar, but there is a guy that will open his personal bar, and sell you beers for about $10 each. In the winters, he runs the Bomlo Open, an 18 hole golf tournament, played on...ICE!!!! Orange balls, and 900 yard par 4's! It's become a bit of a hit in Norway!
