Jeg vil dra på fisketur! I want to go on a fishing trip!  And I will, soon.  Men hvor skal jeg fiske? But where will I fish? Hvilke slags fisk skal jeg fiske etter? What kinds of fish should I fish for? With Norway´s long kystlinje (coastline), fjorder, and many innsjøer (lakes) and elver (rivers)…
