Tribute to Bill Chisholm

William Turnbull Chisholm… Bill to his many friends.
21 October 1935 to 11 October 2017

It is with great sadness I announce the passing of a great friend and angler. Bill loved his fishing adventures whether it was on his local river, the lakes in Ireland or the wilderness of northwest Canada.

I first met Bill as a client on a trip some 30 years ago. He became a firm friend and a valuable asset to my company.

He became part of our family and we enjoyed 27 Christmas’s together in addition to thousands of miles of travelling to many great places.

Bill fished with some of the worlds best anglers and he caught many big fish from Salmon to Halibut, Bream and Sturgeon.

He often said he was lucky but we both knew that with determination and hard work you make your own luck. Bill was a successful engineer and businessman and fishing was his passion along with his/our German Shepherd dogs.

He loved them and they him. His favourites Duke and Ruby pre both deceased him by a few weeks.

If there is an afterlife with rivers and lakes, you can be sure Bill will be fishing away with them by his side.

The end of an era.

Kodiak Alaska

Kodiak Island Alaska is home to the finest fly fishing for big, fit, fresh run Coho Salmon. They are aggressive “takers” and will readily hit surface poppers in addition to clouser patterns. The wildlife is as exciting as the fishing.

Both Sam’s and Dick’s Camps provide comfortable, basic accommodation with excellent food, amazing wildlife and the best fly fishing for salmon on earth. Rods are limited and Dick’s Camp is fly only with only 12 rods per year!. Big runs of fresh Coho on every tide in September. We are talking quantity and quality with Coho reaching 20 pounds and as bright silver and fresh as it gets.

SKJERVOY October 2017

Just returned from a great 3 day trip to Skjervoy to meet the new manager Roger and his assistant Frank. Dave Lewis put the new Jeanneau boat through its paces and it passed with flying colours. With a 115 hp 4 stroke Yamaha engine these excellent boats will offer high levels of safety, reliability and manoeuvrability.

They will be the best fishing platforms in Northern Norway and the full compliment of 10 boats will arrive June 1st. A limited number will be available from March onwards.

The weather was unseasonably good, 2 perfect and 1 good day out of 3.! Temperatures were slightly higher than average and we caught Cod to twenty pounds plus coalies and mackeral. Good off season fishing using both shads and pirks in 30 to 40 metres.

Booking up fast for 2018… call now on 01246 221717.

Lauklines Summer Season Summary 2017

We have just received this season summary from Explore the Arctic, with regards to their fishing trips 2017.

We have now completed another successful fishing season. This was the first season with our new specially built charter boat and it has proven to be the perfect boat for charter boat angling.

New Specially Built Charter Boat

In the start of the season we experienced good fishing for big cod. Due to low water temperatures this fishing lasted until the end of May. The first couple of weeks of the season we also caught some big ling up to approx. 20kg. The amount of big ling seems to increase every year in our area.

Big Cod

The fishing for wolffish started in May and reached its peak in June and July. The biggest one we caught this season was approx. 9kg.

The big coalfish also arrived during May. For a couple of weeks in the end June and start of July we experienced fantastic top water fishing for big coalfish. We even caught them on poppers and floating stickbaits. The biggest coalfish this season was approx. 16kg.

The fishing for haddock was a bit slow this season, even if we caught some nice one in the end of the season.

The fishing for halibut was also a bit slow this season, even if it picked up in the end of the season. The biggest halibuts were caught in September, with fish up to 198cm. As always we had peaks in the halibut fishing a few days before full moon and new moon.

This year the big shoals of mackerel arrived in the start of July and the biggest one we caught was 1,5kg.

The fishing for flatfish in the end of the season resulted in some nice plaice and dab. Plaice up to 3,2kg and dab up to 1kg were caught.

Big Cod

The end of the season has also offered good fishing for whiting and redfish at the deep drop-offs.

As always we had many spectacular nature and wildlife experiences during the fishing trips, such as sea eagles, orcas, mink whales, dolphins and porpoises.

The booking for the next season has already begun and the first trips will take part in the start of May.

We are now looking forward to the winter season with whale watching, winter fjord cruises and Northern Lights trips.

More late summer action in Torsvag

Fantastic fishing for quality fish and variety of species in one of the best sea fishing areas in the north of Norway.

Paul O’Connor and his group enjoyed a great weeks fishing in August at Torsvag. They had many Person Bests with cod to 38lb, plus a wide variety of other species including halibut, plaice, dabs, coalfish, and mackeral.

The camp, accommodation, boats, staff and arrangements “were faultless” and they will be returning same time in 2018.

Gordon Batty and group, Torsvag September

Fantastic fishing during a mixed weather week but they could fish every day. Vast numbers of cod with lots 20 to 30 pound plus. One mark had 30 meters of water and 20 meters of cod !!!

Everyone landed halibut too with Gordon’s biggest weighing 70 pounds.

Great accommodation, faultless staff and well maintained Arvor boats. Needless to say they will return for sure in 2018.
