I sometimes joke and say that I’m a pro skier just so I can get time off and flyfish during summer. If I would be making more money, I guess it would be true. The situation now, though, is that fishing is kind of turning into a job too, since I started writing for some magazines. In another life I might get rich, if that’s good, I don’t know…
Just got back from a couple of weeks in the Swedish mountains. Been fishing with my mentor and good friend Stefan Ågren, solid part of the FrontsideFly-crew, and photographer Hans Johansson, who’s magic behind the lens (he’s mainly a still photographer, but made this video:
a couple of years ago, when we had a sweet day in Lungsjöån), a skilled flyfisher, and a good force to have when me and Stefan can’t behave.
Biggest gear-stoke on the trip is a new sleeping bag I got, The North Face Hightail 2S. 850 down makes it super small and light, but still warm enough. Stoked! And it didn’t come as a big surprise that my new Orvis Helios 2 rod worked extremely well either. One level up for my casting and feeling when fishing.
I thought I’d just post about ten pictures a time from these weeks. Here are the first:
