20071230-1 While I am getting my things ready for the days fishing trip, A car stops right in front of my doorstep, and a horn is honked on. It is Henrik.

Göte on the ice Back at home in Sweden, after spending Christmas with my boys in Norway, Göte and I are out to try the fishing again. This time we will try Hundsjön. This is one of the larger lakes in the area. The water in this lake is crystal clear, and the lake has a sand bottom. The lake is know for its big trout, Artic Char, Vendance, and perch. There is also supposed to be pike here, and Burbot.
