"My fish is bigger than yours!"

On Wednesday we went fishing with David (above) and Magnus (below) off the coast of Hunnebostrand, near Magnus's summerhouse.

I've never been fishing before so was amazed that it was as easy as it was! It was just a case of sticking the rod off the side of the boat, waiting a few minutes and pulling up the fish! Between the 4 of us we caught around 7 mackerel in only 3 hours!

The highlight of the day was when I managed to catch a monster, giant cod!! It was the biggest fish caught by anyone on the boat and was lovely when we had it for dinner later on in the evening - of course in true English style with chips and tartar sauce!
