In the mountains

Distance between the posts now… Follow me on instragram jonsbert for daily updates.

Last week I was far up in the north, in the Padjelanta national park. Epic week… Here are a couple of pics. More are coming.

DoD

In Stockholm now, but are on my way back up to DANSBANDSVECKAN. Hell yeah. Ha ha ha. Have had two days of good biking down here though, even if Pape almost kills me every time we bike…

Here’s one shot from today, and some more from the last weeks of fishing.

Pape. The pain loving bike deamon.

Lapland

Some more photos from Lapland. Their shot with a pocket camera, but I’m really stoked on how a couple of them turned out!

Here’s a video from super talent Rolf Nylinder that I forgot to post earlier. It’s from a DoD trip to Slovenia this spring. Rolf is the master mind behind Frontside Fly. Follow them/us.

Flyfishing

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…

ANYWAY!

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:

Dry or Die

Bought several magazines that made me stoked today. Latest issue of Flugfiakefeber was one of them, where my fishing mentor Stefan Ågren from Frontside Fly write an article on Dry or Die. Stoked that a couple of my trouts made the photo cut, and that I got to say my meaning on DoD!

Car shoot

Had a car shoot with Daniel Rönnbäck the other day, on the way home from biking. Felt kind of weird. Ha ha. But I think he got some sweet pics! Below is my iPhone shot.

Pretty nice evening…

But first some biking.

And between some fishing. Good times! I like this shot. Water is the best mirror…

Fishing, berries, Sthlm… And a trailer!

Had a nice weekend after the bike race this friday. Bummed I missed the bet, but it was pretty good anyway, thinking about the amount of training I had before…

Was pretty much just picking berries and fishing (was shooting some fishing with Daniel Rönnbäck. Fun!) the last days. Now I’m back in Stockholm, and have some work to do. Pumped to get back into the biking here too, and get back on my full suspension bike (Canyon Nerve XC 8.0). The CF bike was fast, nice, and perfect for that race. But for the biking here around Hellas, this is better.

Still stoked for big cars, that doesn’t drink gas. I was about to buy a bike rack (don’t know the english word here, sorry) for my VW Passat. But I can easily get two bikes and lots of stuff in it if I convert the back seat, so… I don’t really need it. Ha ha. We’ll see when the mud season starts soon though…

And since the skiing season actually is closing in – here’s another trailer from Junkies On a Budget:

Here are some iPhone shots from the weekend.

Small video

Have been out fishing with Hansiii and some Frontside Fly guys (Ågren and Spade) for about ten days now. And… this is when we normally wake up:

Into the wild

Two days ago I left Stockholm, and now we’re quite a bit up north. Picked up Hasse in Malung yesterday morning. Stopped in Marja-land yesterday where we hooked up with Marja Persson and Gösta Fries. Had a super nice evening, and it was good to see Marja catch some trouts on her new fly rod. Good times!!!

Now we’re on the road north. I’m happy…

Bread. Beer. Cheese. We have coffee. That’s all we need!

20120703-122444.jpg
I was worried about the car here. And it got worse… But it all went fine!

20120703-122608.jpg
Marja and Gösta told us they left a hint, so that we would take the right path. Thank you!

20120703-122819.jpg
We saw some of these, but then a rain storm kind of killed it…

Marja was killing it!

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!
