GO CRAYFISH CATCHING WITH TRAPPER ARNE

Over the years I have written newsletters and articles about this and that. No other topic occurs more often than describing my trips up the mountains to lakes and streams where I went crayfish catching. My archive is full of these tales, and now and then I go back to them to refresh my memory of successful - and some not so successful - fishing expeditions.

For those who are interested in reading about my crayfish adventures, here is a collection of some articles and newsletters I have written over the years. Some have been published here and there; others are here offered to the public for the first time.

Click on any of these links and you will be taken to that newsletter or article. To return here again, you can click on the return icon in the upper left corner of the page.
