Local Fisherman For A Day


Man Cave! Deap sea longline fishing with Capt.Tor. Attendance at 09:00 sharp. Be a local Fisherman for a day! This price includes 4 persons on a private trip. Let’s catch some real beasts from the deep water. Preparation the longline and “after-trolling” into the silent fjords the evening before.

This service can also be combined for an entire day’s fishing experience. Pure fishing and less sightseeing, but still framed in a stunning fjord landscape around Balestrand.

In Pure Fishing you attend the preparation the evening before. Know the expectation as we prepare and pre-sett fishing gear in the evening. The excitement, the waiting unto you wake up the following morning. Maybe you stay in a long term fjord cabin her in Balestrand area. Maybe you are on your first “road trip” and just want vitality in life..

(By the way, in July - august on the interesting and colourfully wrasse fishing. I haul up fish baskets and tubes in the Balestrand Fjord area. This fishing is very remunerative, because the wrasse is used in Norwegian salmon farming as an ecological combat of sea lice and to create a better quality of life for farmed salmon. Wrasse fishing is suitable for 1-2 persons to join..)

Imagine the feeling. Imagine you look out the window. To check the weather. Some morning talk. Breakfast table. Friends. Arriving the boat who is waiting and ready in the marina. The local fisherman feeling :)

As we travel out on the fjord, it’s still breakfast time at the Kvikne’s Hotel. You are a morning bird. You are one of the local fishermen. You’ve got that feeling. Ready to live the life that you want this day. You wave to the guests in the building. You are motivated. Breathing the fresh morning air through your nose boars. Vitality..

You pick up the marker buoy with a grabber. The Øien 620 boat handle the situation. Steady. Challenges is just a possibility for growth. Every day is just a new beginning. One steep forward, is one step closer. If it is to be, it’s up to me. You give your self the same encouragement as you give a good friend..

The fish is usually big in the deep sea fish nets. The long line makes the fish floats up like footballs on the surface. Coming up from the deep. Something dark, big or shiny is rising up. Hook it. Cut it’s throat. You’ve done it before. You are a hunter. It’s gutted for sale too local buyers or you bring it home. Food on the table. You are a provider. Feeling proud…

An empty fishing net don’t stop you from going on. You know what you want, and you move forward until to you get it. You never failed, either you learn from it or you win! There are limitless reasons to be cheerful of our life. Today you choose to be completely happy, no matter what. Today you are vibrant, healthy and alive. Today..

Seagulls follow us back. The fish is guttered. You are friendly and generous. The tale of birds following our boat makes you pride. Life is good to you. You’ve deserve it. You’ve earn it. Watching the famous red villas form the seaside. The fjord light..

The sound from the Honda BF 60 is pure quality. You’ve got that funny smile and the glimpse in your eye. That feeling.. It gives you the power and recognition in every situation. You know what you want. Tools that you relight on in every situation. You got it. Self-esteem. You have control over yourself and the circumstances. People are comfortable around you. Recognition, a nod..

“This moment, make it personal. This is personality. Happiness is simply a choice you can make. It starts with a little smile. Allows you to feel special, balanced, Focused. It create memories and experience as we return back to Balestrand, and that is a little fun. Pure fishing, to be a local fisherman..” - Capt.Tor
