Hi , laz ,

Very sorry , but I absolutely have no info about Norwegian spoons ! I only have one or two somewhere , that I have found on fleamarkets , if I'd find them , I'd post pictures as well .

I have asked my Finnish friend about these before , but he also didn't know anything .

It seems , that they are rare over here , since I don't know about any Norwegian manufacturer being involved into the local market nor any widely spread lures from there . Norway is more known for deep sea saltwater fishing rather than freshwater angling(though there is good trout and salmon fishing over there , too) .
Many guys from Germany make trips to Norway for that , but no spoons used , but heavy pirks and bait .

If I have more time , I'd try to find something in the web , did already a bit , but no results so far....sorry !

Hi , laz

Sorry , couldn't find anything any more on the web , they seem to be rare(especially if one don't speak Norwegian) .

Anyway , I have found one of mine(I definately have another one somewhere) , got it from a fleamarket . Obviously it was retrieved from a snag , since it was in a bad condition , like my second one as well . Since I intend to fish these lures I have re-polished and re-rigged them , also added a decal eye .

This one here is stamped "RAENSK JEIA" , 26 GR. , PARAVAN , MADE IN NORWAY . The first term is the model name , I assume ,... and "Paravan" maybe the manufacturer .
The other spoon , that I couldn't find(looks different , more oval shape), has a name and weight stamped on it too , and I know for sure , that also "PARAVAN" appears on that one , too .

But on the other hand , a "paravan" is a fishing-related term over here for a trolling device , it is a weight with diving fins and multiple attachment holes , that pulls a trolled bait down to a pre-set depth behind the boat .

There also is that term "paravan" around for a sort of moveable room devider , so all this didn't make it easy to google for this one !

Dieter, I'm having a stab in the dark {Ozzie for guessing} but could your spoon possibly be a Renoski?

@ Fizza

Came across that manufacturer's name "Renosky" somwhere before , don't remember , where.......but I guess , that it was American ????

Really funny , but real hard to find any Norwegian stuff , since many German and other European fishermen travel up north every year for their native big saltwater fish ,....they've got a whole little tourist industry living on it......a source of income for the nation not to overlook.......but freshwater lures.............?????? droolsmilie droolsmilie

G'day Diemai . I found that Elbe spoon inside of a tackle box after our local Fairbairn Dam water levels dropped to 16% a few years back the rest of the contents of the box were censored i don't intend to repolish the spoon as i like the patinas it has acquired after years of being under the water just like clasic bronzes. And the best part about finding snagged lures is there free more money to spend on fishing gear lol .Catch ya laz

@ laz

I find different lures every season , since my local waters are heavily pressured.......find them hanging in trees on the bank(lost by bank anglers , with my little boat I can reach them) , floating crankbaits sometimes lay between the rocks of the embankments , on rare occsions I'd even hook them with my own lure or even with my boats anchor ! yay yay yay

A good source for plastic lures is that spot shown downstream a dam at the river "Elbe" , that place is still affected by up to 2,5 metres average tide lift coming down from the North Sea , so if you get there Monday mornings at low tide , you could always pick a couple of plastics out of the bases of those rock piles .

Not that I purposely go there for lures , but ocassionally we'd show up there to gather some crabs , that had just thrown off their old shells , so they are vulnerable and hide out under the rocks , these are dead sure eel bait !
