Nikkaloukta to Abisko June 2019 Day 4.

Nikkaloukta to Abisko June 2019 Day 4. What a good decision it was to stop earlier the day before and setup just below Tjätkja Stugan.

We woke to beautiful weather with a amazing view looking down the valley towards Alesjaure.

Nikkaloukta to Abisko June 2019 Day 4.

Breakfast for myself was Easy Eggs and for Jared it was a combination of co-codamol and naproxen.

After eating breakfast the light and weather conditions where absolutely perfect to fly the DJI Spark.

So after flying the drone and packing up we started making our way down the valley North towards Alesjaure.

Subscriber Giveaway

I’m doing a subscriber giveaway. I started a YouTube channel as many people have said I should and although at first I was vary wary about it as I’m not that sort of in front of the camera guy, i’m actually quite enjoying it and love filmmaking.

My channel is here: youtube.com/c/BetweenTheTrees

I’m filming my micro adventures, fishing trips, hiking trips, day hikes, gear reviews.

Stalking For Pike

I haven’t had much time to get out recently with work and other things going on so I decided to go on a little micro adventure  stalking for pike with the Dog and convert a dog walk into stalking for pike along the river.

It’s very difficult to balance everything sometimes and sometimes something has to give and it is important to keep that balance in our day to day lives.

I head out along the river after a real heavy night of wind and rain and I am very thankful that we cancelled the previous nights camp out as the weather really did turn for the worst.

stalking for pike

My stalking equipment basically consist of a small spinning rod, telescopic net and a ruck sack with a few lures in it.

The lure I was using this day was a small (6cm) rubber shad with a single hook.  These are very productive along this stretch of the river and the previous week I had a good catch so I thought i’d give this a go again.

The tide was really low and I don’t think i’ve seen it this low before.  My thought where that the fish would be very concentrated in the main channel but this wasn’t the case.

The method I use is casting out, allowing the lure to hit the bottom, the retrieve a little jigging the lure then allowing it to drop to the bottom.  I find that a lot of the time the fish are taking the lure on the drop.

Not very productive fishing session only had one but it got me out for a while.

Due to to limited time I head to head back home after one fish but managed to head out the next day for a little down time.  Post to follow.

Covehithe the road to nowhere

road to nowhere

Covehithe the road to nowhere
Looking North

I regularly visit Covehithe the road to nowhere and today was a visit back to this windswept part of the Suffolk coastline.

The plan was to walk along the cliff down to Benacre Broad and south a little way to the area I normally setup and have breakfast.

Beautiful morning, clear skies, sun shinning and hardly any wind.

Walking along the ‘road to nowhere’ where nature has taken over the road that used to supply the village before it was lost to sea I notice that that Hawthorns are heavily laden with berries

(a sign of a harsh winter to come so the wifes tale says).

On the way in I stopped at a Sweet Chestnut tree that was also heavily laden but the nuts hadn’t developed into anything (perhaps due to the extreme heat / lack of rain this summer).

The view North.

As I reach the cliff and look North there is a little Northerly ground swell pushing some waves onto the beach.

Looking at the beach the pebbles have all been replaced by golden sand all the way to the cliff.  This shows that a large northerly ground swell has recently being hitting the coast.

Heading North I can see where the trees that lined the cliff have been removed by Natural England as a project to correct the Suffolk Coastal Path along the cliff and down to Southwold.

Currently the path has to meander from the coast at Benacre Broad, missing Covehithe and along the road to get to Southwold.

On reaching the beach at Benacre from Covehithe the road to nowhere I take some time filming this micro adventure.

Heading South to the area where the trees are in the sand to build a fire and have some coffee and breakfast.

breakfast on the beachBreakfast on the beach.

I was having a cook up with a friend here once when another dog walker said “what a great idea and what a lovely place to sit and have breakfast!”

And it is, you can’t beat cooking outside especially in a spot like this, no crowds, sound of the sea, beautiful day and a good hearty breakfast.

Utilising the trees that are on the beach I gather some fire wood, sweep out a hole for the fire (this also helps as a wind break, the sand is swept, building into a mound which blocks the wind).

Eagle Products 70cl KettleBreakfast

Using a foldable metal grill the Kettle goes on, the kettle I use is Norwegian made by a company call Eagle Products they can be brought in the U.K.

Out comes the frying pan, bacon, mushrooms and the egg sits waiting to be cracked when the bacon is done.

covehitheI like to brew as I call it Cowboy Coffee which is literally just Coffee grounds straight into the kettle once its boiled, leave a few minutes to brew and settle then carefully pour.

Whilst all of this is cooking the Dog sits there knowing she gets her bit of bacon and the frying pans pre-wash is done by the dog before cleaning out using the sand.

Once cleared away its time for the Dog to have her swim and head back home.
