This early summer, we finally got to fish together again as Jan came to visit from Sweden. A beautiful summer day on a beautiful small stream, flowing behind the house we grew up in. It was all about making the little time we had together count. Childhood memories all over again!

This is the final Episode of Season II!
We had often talked about taking a trip into the Swedish Mountains, far away from any roads or buildings. In early 2013 we agreed on a river, unavailable to anyone who isnt willing to walk for days or fly in. We decided to do the latter!
THISISFLY Magazine was kind enought to publish one of our articles about that one fly that you never use but keep in your fly box until the unlikely situation arises where you actually need it. Check it out:
Finchasers Magazine just released their new issue, featuring an article about us!

My partner and I will be traveling through Norway for 3 weeks, starting on July 20th in Oslo. We are going to make our way all the way up to Narvik while shooting a road movie/fly fishing film about the people we meet. We are also enthusiastic couchsurfers looking for interesting Norwegians.
If you are from Norway and would like to be part of my next film and/or willing to let us stay with you for a night, shoot me a message!!!
Since Jonas decided to have trouble with his knee again and was unable to walk properly, I decided to go fishing our home lake alone last week.
I came down that hill on the little path we have walked for years now, took a look into the bay and saw big trout rising.

I was calm and concentrated while switching the reel and leader and chose a tiny black dry fly which I supposed would match the midge-hatch.
The second cast from more than 5 meters behind the shore line gave me that beauty on the dry. Then of course I wished Jonas were there to take a better photo and share this moment. Took a picture myself and called Jonas minutes later.
I really look forward to more moments like this, sharing my passion with my brothers and everybody who cares.
All fishermen know the excitement of exploring new waters but also the joy of fishing familiar rivers. In this episode we try out a new river but also return to our favorite one.
I just came back from catching one of those few fish in your life that you just don’t forget. It was the biggest and strongest Brown I have ever caught on a fly and I wish it had been my most special fishing moment as well, but it wasn’t! Continue reading
