With a sharp eye and a keen and energetic sense of adventure, the author at 33 years old sets out on yet another trip to northern Norway to fish for Atlantic salmon to three spectacular rivers: the Stordalselva, the Namsen, and the Bjora. David travels and fishes through Norway’s pristine landscape with his friend and guid Truls Ronning, and together with a gleaming new Saab 9-3, they cover most of the pools and riverbanks holding both newly-arrived salmon from the North Sea and an international mix of anglers and characters you won’t forget.

Refreshingly free of the expert fisherman posture, David examines and experiences the Northern life and its fishing with affection and with his eyes wide open. In clear, fresh and vivid prose, the author revels in the ever dependable return of the salmon and his return to the Nordic North – both magnificently pulled by the sun to the land where it never sits. The author’s artful, evocative black-and-white photographs illustrate this memorable book. In a Clamshell Box
