FAREWELL (MAINLAND) NORWAY
Some great, awe-inspiring snow capped mountains were our final well-wishers as we headed north on our sea passage to Svarlbard. Though not before Brian, our skipper directed us to his trusted fishing grounds to see us well stocked for the crossing.
Having had little luck fishing from a boat, or anywhere for that matter, I was sceptical that we?d catch anything at all. After a bit of back and forth over a shallow we dropped our hooks and immediately started pulling out specimens that would have made any angler at home proud. However these weren?t right and got thrown back – ?pollock, not cod!? Soon, though we had masses including a three-footer (I swear!).
Now for some creative recipes…
Onwards toward Svalbard.
