Ice fishers need stamina...

No Fishing Luck


Another ice fisher from Lake Rudan in Handen. I took this photo from one of the piers. As I was chatting to Christer (see yesterdays photo), this man walked by and said he was giving up for the day. Sadly none of the ice fishers got any fish during my stay, but it was a beautiful day and everyone seemed happy anyway. Most of the guys at the lake are members of the local fishing club. It's called Lilla Fiskelyckan.

I had often wondered about this, now I know. Interesting way to pass time and enjoy nature.

Such a powerful image. In some ways he looks so lonely but I do see, on reflection, probably not so, just a nice day out in a beautiful setting.

What kind of fish might they hope to catch, I wonder?

It's not a secret Kris, just have a look at the previous posting :-)

I must be getting old. I completely missed that!

I wonder if the trout get cold? I read somewhere that the chemical in the blood of fish that acts like anti-freeze is the same one that makes them smell the way they do.

How does he keep his bait from freezing?

They often use larvae. Which is the basic food for trout.
