Lapland iPhone shots

Some more shots from the trip I had to Lapland last week. Me and Katapulto hooked up with the Frontside Fly guys to catch some big trouts and arctic chars. But, the big mayfly hatches never happened, so we just drank a lot of knert, coffee and people-beer, and had a good time instead!

No luck

Been in/around Sorsele for a week now. It’s been a lot of this (waiting):

And not so much of this (catching fish):

Good times with Katapulto and the Frontside Fly dudes though! Lots of coffee and knert. Soon – Sthlm and biking.

Epic video

My friends from Sweetgrass Productions have made another epic edit. Swedish Freeride.se talked about it as the most beautiful edit ever. And yes, it might be.

Different kind of bikes

Just some iPhone pics.

20120616-000146.jpg
Great trails. Great light. Great bike.

20120616-000305.jpg
Met Per Jonsson. He’s fast on the bike! But I’m faster with the phone… Ha ha.

20120616-000512.jpg
Biked some more, and made it up this small section for the first time. Good to be me!

20120616-000637.jpg
On the way home, I saw a lot of white trees in one place.

20120616-000735.jpg
Pretty disgusting…

20120616-000825.jpg
Went up at six this morning to bike with Pape “The Machine”. It was a nice morning.

20120616-000938.jpg
Got a flat tire almost immediately, and also did some idiot thing and fell in a rock. I think it’s kind of fun that small things can really hurt when it comes to the shins…

20120616-001136.jpg
So I sat down and just listened to the birds for a while. Early mornings seems to be the time to hit the crowded “woods” of Stockholm… Bike is the same as last year, only one year newer. A Canyon Nerve XC 8.0. Feels perfect for the Stockholm terrain!

20120616-001605.jpg
Deers in Stockholm are not afraid of people. Feels wrong…

20120616-001704.jpg
But now I’m on a totally different biking mission! Bea and my friend Kluckis just started the 300 km bike race “Vätternrundan”. So me and Johanna are here as support. They’re biking all night, but I’m sure they’re gonna be fine when we meet them tomorrow morning with food and dry clothes. Cheers!

Biking to Sverre

Been on a couple of missions today. Did some computer work this morning, then I went to the Canyon Bicycles headquarters to get some help from the mechanic/magician Gurra. After that I went straight back, and then took the bike to Älgö, where me and Bea had dinner with Sverre and Hanna + sister. Good times!

20120614-000314.jpg
Gurra is the man when you have a bike problem.

20120614-000413.jpg
Half way, on Älgö, and at Sverre’s place.

Vulgata weekend

Went home early this Friday, and drove back to Dalarna. Always good to be in Bynn… Here are some iPhone shots of what went down. Went down? Ha ha. Camping went down, and here are some shots.

20120611-110134.jpg
This is a so called “Dala Horse”, and it should give you positive vibes.

20120611-110231.jpg
In the south of Dalarna… These dudes are a mix of skateboarders and raggare: skate-raggare. It’s a pretty funny mix… “a Audi” is pretty funny too. Ha ha.

20120611-110431.jpg
An hour later we arrived in the true parts of Dalarna – the west, and Bynn. Here’s another kind of raggare.

20120611-110548.jpg
The real ones! They don’t drive Audi, they drive big ass American cars, and get shitfaced and stare angry at people who don’t have big ass American cars. I like the true raggare.

20120611-110850.jpg
I like my own, German Volkswagen even better though, and this is why. It’s a big car, that packs all my stuff, but drinks 0,4 – 0,45. Blue Motion – Hallelujah!

20120611-111205.jpg
It’s also good for taking a stand. Dry or Die, my friends!

20120611-111335.jpg
Bea followed me on this fishing trip. She didn’t bring a rod though, she brought a book, and her new Blue Kazoo sleeping bag. She bought it the other day, and said she could follow me anywhere, as long as we would stay in a tent. Fair enough.

20120611-111746.jpg
I brought a rod though! And was hoping for the big Ephemera Vulgata to hatch. This sorry dude didn’t really make me happy though…

20120611-111943.jpg
I still managed to trick this beauty to eat my fly. Here’s a small video. It was a 50 cm + fish, and the biggest I got in a couple of years I think…

20120611-112315.jpg
This is the next day, and what we were looking for!

20120611-112424.jpg
The fish didn’t want our flies any more though… But Hansi was tempted!

20120611-112538.jpg
Cause they really look tasty…

20120611-112651.jpg
Now I’m back in Stockholm, staring out the kitchen window, trying to forget about fishing and get in the deadline-match again. Coffee is the biggest inspiration!

Volkswagen golf competition

Today Sverre and me played a sweet Volkswagen golf competition at Bro Hof. It’s fancy at hell, so me and Sverre blended in just peeerfect! Ha ha. I haven’t played in four years or do, and… But I did one par! And plenty of triples…

20120607-194511.jpg

Liliequist dominating the scene.

20120607-194848.jpg
Nice!

What? You didn’t expect me to walk!?

Säveån photos

Came back from Säveån late last night. Really tired, but pretty happy. Had three nice days, but we had a little bad luck with the weather, so there weren’t any big hatches. We all got some nice trouts though, and Acapulco also got a new nick name – from now on he is Katapulto. We also made some new friends. Local hero Ulf Börjesson and his friend Lars-Åke Pålsson gave us some valuable tips about the fishing there, and also donated some flies to us less knowing masar. Thank you!!!

Don’t know if it’s that much more to say… Well! I’m stoked on the new waterproof daypack The North Face made. I’ve had drybags before, but not made as lightweight, comfortable backpacks. Sweet for a rainy day, or when I’m close to water. In other words; I will use it a lot!Also a never ending stoke on my Blue Motion VW Passat, that drinks close to nothing, even when it’s heavy loaded and are in a hurry.

Here are some shots from the last days:

Good times in Säveån

Me, Swimming Kluckis, Diving Acapulco and Finn-Hans is in Säveån on the first trout trip this year. Beautiful place, beautiful fish. Just a couple of iPhone shots:

20120602-181140.jpg
On the road.

20120602-182530.jpg
Planning and beering.

20120602-182608.jpg
What we want to see – Ephemera Danica.

20120602-182654.jpg
The North Faceare a new dry-bag backpack. Even dry flies li… Ah, never mind… The pack’s awesome though!

20120602-183918.jpg
DoD!

20120602-184101.jpg
When it’s a little bit cold, a “knert” is very good to keep the spirit high!

20120602-184224.jpg
Not super big, but very pretty…

20120602-184320.jpg
I found this chair when I “was in emergency”. (it’s true) But there will be no “after” picture.

20120602-184452.jpg
43 cm. bye bye. See you next year!

20120602-184707.jpg
I found a new friend. Thumbs up for him! Or her.
