Lofoten Planet #7 2B a fisherman in Lofoten

What does it take to be a fisherman in Lofoten Islands? There are only two ways I think. First: you have to be born here and continue a family tradition. Second: you have to move in to the islands, get accepted by local society and find a skipper willing to trust you. Many want to try, few are chosen. My friend Leon is the chosen one and I was the lucky one to join them on their very last day of the season. Team work seems to be the highest value on board, but what impressed me most was the unique bond between the skipper and the crew. I’m sharing some of those moments with you over here – enjoy..
