“Balestrand Family & Fish-nett- have the same basic design as my most popular Balestrand Fjord Trolling trip, but this one have more action for younger kids to learn their skills. We (they) pull up pre-set fish-nett…Big, small, funny or flat fish? Starfish and crawling crabs!… Maybe a small shark or a lobster? With me, there is also room for personality. My boat trips can also bring perspective and basics about what matters in life. This timeframe can be difficult to implement on your own, so let me help you out exploring the fjords..” - Capt.Tor
