Misako visited Vestsjøberget Flyfishing
Misako Ishimura is the captain of the Japanese national team in fly fishing, casting instructor and supporter of tenkara fly fishing. Norway is hosting the World Fly Fishing Championships this year. It started the 10th of August. Mikaso visited Trysil and Vestsjøberget Flyfishing for prepare to the championship.
Vestsjøberget Flyfishing is nearly a 6 km long stretch in The Trysil River. The strech is varied, here you will find both fast streams and slow flowing river. Chris Hendriks from Fishing-Experiences was the guide Misako. Fishing-Experiences cooperates with Vestsjøberget Flyfishing.
The day Chris and Misako fished at Vestsjøberget Flyfishing was the water level below the normal for the season. It was easy to find fish, but it was not as easy to get it on the hook. But they got fish on both with nymphs and dry flies. The most effective fly was a caddis imitasjon.
Misako was very satisfied with the fishing and the experience at Vestsjøberget Flyfishing. Chris from Fishing-Experience and Misako fished in Vestsjøberget fly for 3 days. Day one gave 15 grayling and one trout. The average size was at 35 cm. Two hours fishing the other day gave 7 grayling where the biggest grayling was 42 cm. The third day they caught 11 grayling with an average size of 35 cm.
The hosts, Anders Nyhuus and his family, received top scores from Misako. The combination of good hosts, great fishing experiences and delicious food did that Misako really want to visit Vestsjøberget Flyfishing at a later date.
