Early F-T Photos

North Norway Once Upon a Time


Hunting, fishing and dogs were all things I grew up with from an early age, and they remain as life time interests.

At the age of five, with Passop, a new English Setter pup in the family.

A very young F-T posing with a fox. My grandfather shot several hundred foxes during many a winter night, and through our entire childhood my brother and I used to accompany him while waiting for the fox to come to the bait.

A young and handsome dude with a Saithe (“sei”).

A lot was expected by small people in those days. Here F-T is having a rest with Linka, not an English Setter, but she did a lot of retrieving and tracking for my grandfather Fridtjof.

The first Kasan with a couple of winter ptarmigan shot over him. Kasan was the dog that really made me interested in gundogs, and in particular passionate about English Setters.

Kasan II.
