It seems that Norwegians are good at a lot more than fermenting fish, cross country skiing, and distilling aquivits...They tie interesting crab flies and catch lots of stripers, too.

I had these two guys booked for a sight fishing trip but we where blown out, they where hosted by a friend Steve Strag and those crab patterns are his, these guys where cracking me up while there was a constant on line chat about how poor the beach fishing was these two where in heaven and can't wait to come back to Maine.

Tark - I translated (with google) and posted for your reading pleasure. Quirky machine translation, but gives you the gist.

Very nice...

...sounds like they had a great trip - kinda makes you think/reaffirm that if you just maybe switch it up from the norm and try some stuff that may be a bit different than you are used to there is a lot of fun to be had.

Very cool, and welcome to the board, Steve. I see you more often out surfing, and lately in the Forecaster SUP'ing- have you fished from the SUP?

I gotta tie some crab patterns.....
