Fishing cabin

The fishing cabin here at Blokkodden comes from Kuneset by Femund, and was used by people from the Femund cabin and Svukuriset during the fishing of European whitefish and Arctic char in the fall. The cabin is a log cabin with a peat roof, called a ljørbu. Ljørbu is the name used on cabins with a hearth on the floor and a smoke vent in the ceiling. It was built in the early 1900s, and is traditionally furnished with benches along the walls. The rods below the smoke vent were used when drying fishing nets. The fishing during the spawn was in October and November in Femund. Often the nets froze stiff and had to betaken inside for thawing. Outside the cabin there is a rack used when drying the nets.
