Season opener at Lauttasaari 24.3
Woke up 30 minutes before my alarm clock should have done it anyway,felt so fuckin tired after 2-3 hours nervous sleep,headache..dragged me out of my warm bed and looked out from window,yeah...a small breeze added with sleet. Normally I would have dragged me back to bed and go on sleeping,perhaps for the rest of the day but not today,I felt great,it was time for some kind of a season opener. In my vestibule I had already a bag packed from yesterday ready for today.But better to check it out one more time. -Striping bag -Flies -Rod -Reel -Landing net -Chestbag including pliers,scissors,leaders ETC,ETC....Everything seemed to be okay so after some coffee I jumped into my car and drove to Lauttasaari.One more cup of coffee,put my waders on and walked down to the shore. The smell of open water,the cold (almost freezy)breeze,crystal clear water,god I felt happy that moment,I just can´t describe the feeling.....I mean...I have practice my casting all the winter on a local field near where I live but to be able to lay out some line in open water...it just felt heavenly. As I told you in my previous post I didn´t had too much expectations to land any fishes,just took this trip to practice more my casting skills. Anyway,I tied a blue colored fly called "Haili" pattern to start with.Waded out in the cold water and started to practice my double haul. After an hour or so I felt that my balls probably must be blue colored by now,at least my fingers was both white,red and blue and on top of that I had no sensation in them either so i thought it might be time for a coffee break and why not take some photos too.
