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:

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!

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

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

We saw some of these, but then a rain storm kind of killed it…

Marja was killing it!

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:
