After a dudd trip in attempt to catch some Arctic Char for the Christmas feast , and some very shifty weather my hopes where not exactly the highest when heading out to the fishing spot. Getting to the lake I find that the usual gang of anglers where already there. These are a set of old timers that believe that fishing is to fill the freezer, and they keep pulling up fish and stuffing it in their freezer even though half of their catch get's tossed in the compost . No wonder they need to stock some fish every year in these lakes.

20080126 1 Horten is a fairly large lake, about 30 minutes by car from Sveg. Horten contains a natural stock of Perch, Burbot, Vendance, pike, and Brown Trout. The fishing administration for this area also stock Arctic Char, and some Brown trout in the lake. There is also some very few Canadian Lake trout in Horten as well. a little rest of some fish stocked many years ago. The opening of the fishing season in this lake is a big event.  The fishing administration stocks more fish in this lake than in many of the other lakes in the area. The fish are also a little larger than for instance in Hundsjön. Due to the size of the lake, Göte has asked his buddy Ragnar to join us. Ragnar has a snow scooter, and loves fishing just as much as Göte and I.
