Vreid lead singer and Avinet co-founder Sture sent me these touching photos from his annual salmon fishing expeditioin to the once famous, now apparently empty, salmon river Gaula in Trøndelag. The thumbnail photo shows a no. 10 fly-hook (accidentally) embedded into Stures index finger.
The photo below shows a wall exhibition of fishing gear removed from various body parts of fishermen so far in 2007 at a local medical facility near the Gaula river. Though traditionally thought of as a peaceful and tranquil activity, fishing does hold it’s dangers for those involved!
Stuck on the board are the various types of hooks used with a small hand written note saying things like “Man 33, right index finger”, “Man 26, left ear”, “Man 52, unmentionable” etc.
