Today…

…was a good day:

I’m hanging out in our summer house now. Easy living. This was breakfast this morning. Sweet… Sat in the sun and had a good day writing.

But at five pm, I felt the urge… I had to fish. So I went out with my man Son of God, and started hunting “Julgrisen”.

This is still what we’re imitating.

The Son did a good job with his “Aunt May” fly.

Don’t know if I can blame Ågren’s spinner imitation, but this was the only thing I caught…

The Son quickly cheered me up though, with some smoked salmon next level wraps and a 2,8 beer.

This is from our mellow cabin midsummer. Bea is in Stockholm now, but I’ll be driving down there tomorrow or Friday. Another kind of summer happiness.

DoD in Lapland

Have been a couple of good weeks. Been shooting a lot of pictures, but just got them in the computer, so I haven’t edited many of them. Here are a few of them though, from a trip up to Lapland with Stefan Ågren and Rolf Nylinder from Frontside Fly. And today – you getting a bonus pic too!

Monster Trout

Have been in Sorsele over the weekend. Have been pretty epic. Lots of 2,8-beer, coffee and fishing. Was hanging with my friends Stefan Ågren and awesome snowboarder Rolf Nylinder, who’s running Frontside Fly. Ågren almost killed the fishing this summer by catching (and releasing) this trout (my scale stops at about 4,2 kg, it was over that, and 77 cm), of course Dry or Die style:

“Hi there. I can die happy now.”

It was these ones we were following – Ephemera Vulgata.

That’s a good distance…

I caught (and released) this char. Small, but very beautiful. I got a nice one later. No iPhone pic of that one though… Coming later!

One evening I did “raggmunk” for me and Spade. Unexpected. And really good!

Ågren was unbeatable…

Bought a season pass for a big part of Lapland. Hell yeah!

20110621-003650.jpg
Last evening up in the North. I’m in Stockholm now, and… It’s good with a break from fishing maybe. Ha ha. But I miss this stuff…

Today I had a sweet day though! Helping photographing friend Hans Johansson shooting kids clothes from Franka. Is this the best photo brief ever?

A sign

Well… When I was shopping for lunch (bought stuff so I can do raggmunkar, unexpected!), I saw this little fellow. Feels like it can’t get more obvious…

There

Classic Swedish hostel. Smells like the seventies… Nice to be in bed after a pretty random little 800 km evening drive up to Lapland.

Difficult times

Well… I don’t really know what to say. Fishing season (a very important season to me), have started bad. We’ve been trying everything – drinking more coffee, more beer, walking further, trying new waters. But everything have been in vain.

This weekend we were in Dynamiten’s hut close to Tännäs. Good times, and we all performed extremely well in the drinking part of the trip. We also found some new, sweet rivers. Stefan immediately made a great sacrifice to the Dry or Die gods:

But this is how they answered (take an extra look at Daniel “Usain Bolt” Karlsson the first seconds):

So it was not that much to do. We drank some more coffee, some more 2,8’s, and some more whiskey. We got some graylings, but the trouts stayed away…

Oh why, dear DoD God. Why!?

Karma?

Kind of hard to say what it is. Karma I guess…
