I will not be doing much desktop gardening this week, since I am going fishing for Atlantic salmon. A few rivers here in Denmark have good runs of searun brown trout and more and more Atlantic salmon returns to the rivers every year, because the conditions in rivers have improved, so more salmon reach the spawning areas in these rivers. Stocking programs using the wild unique salmon running these rivers have saved very small population of salmon that were on the brink of extinction. The
numbers of salmon returning has increased each year and now the fishing is reliable.
Besides gardening I have been tying salmon flies for many years. (What is a rose lover supposed to do the 6 months every year when the roses are not blooming here? They only bloom from May to end of October. I tie salmon flies like these:
I will let it dance in the currents and hope that a salmon comes up and takes it, and that I will have the luck and skill needed to carry a big silvery salmon like this one up to the cabin:
Now what has this got to do with gardening? Well I may get to use some of dill and citrus thyme from my garden, when eating one of these delicious fish. Smoked or steamed. And I just wanted to let my garden blog friends and readers know why I am not posting much these days, and why comments are not posted until I get home again. I have also gotten quite a few emails, that I will reply to when I get home next week.
