Photographer's Note

What can be better than spending your day on a rock in the archipelago, trying to catch a sea trout (Salmo Trutta), and enjoying the beautiful weather.

Sea trouts are always the most popular catch for all the recreational fishers on the Swedish west coast. The season starts on April 1st and lasts until September 1st. You are allowed to catch two trouts per day and they have to be longer than 45 cm.

I did not speak to these anglers but whenever I meet someone along the coast around Gothenburg, they tell me that they have not caught anything yet, but they all know of someone who caught a big one “yesterday”. “Today” all conditions are different, too much wind or too little wind, too much water or too little water. One guy blamed his failure on a seal he had seen swimming around, scaring the trouts away.

This picture was taken at Amundön in the southern archipelago of Gothenburg.

I dedicate this picture to Pavle Randjelovic (pajaran), an avid angler.
