  Week 01 - 15, 2009

week 15/2009
The rainbow trout from the hatchey at Källefall is just great and beautifully spotted, even newly stocked.

week 14/2009

Sometimes you see a picture and you whish you could be there with a camera and a fishing companion! This winter pic from Nedre Dalälven is just awesome with the good light, frosty trees and fog over the water.

week 13/2009

When taking a kid fishing the best planning is not to have a plan at all. This day Tilda totally ignored the rainbow trouts and Catch of the day turned out to be the biggest tadpole of the lake, 1 inch long!

week 12/2009

Sometimes it is amazing what a macro lense can reveal when you rellay go up close. This is the fin of a perch from some weeks ago, with nice sunlight on the main subject against clear black ice. The colours are just great, and you do not see the structure until you look at it on the screen.

week 10/2009

Even if it´s still some time to go, the summer will eventually come!

week 9/2009

This is basic flytying in the dark, before hotshot LED micro headlamps. A MagLite tucked inside the hat and a single candle. The fly turned out just beautiful, and the next day it pursuaded the biggest fish of the week.

week 8/2009

Dinner is served in a backcountry hut somewhere on the South Island, New Zealand. If you have seen the TroutBum Diaries NZ, it is exactly like that, cheap pasta, noodles and tomato sauce 7 days a week.      

Nikon F90X, Sigma 28-70mm/2,8 @ 40mm, 1/125sec @ f5,6, Fuji Provia, handheld, flash.

week 7/2009

I have made a series of macro pictures of flies laying on a mirror. It gives the flies a very nice apperance as the mirror acts as a big bouncer, but a very unforgiving one. It takes a digital camera, preferable connected to a computer and big screen, and very exact positioning of the flash to avoid reflections and ghost shadows in the final picture.

week 6/2009

I must admit that I really like foggy mornings, especially the ones following a cold and clear september night. This picture shows my friends Peter & Peter fishing for brown trout from a small wooden boat. The sun is just about to get through the thick fog, and the silouette of the boys are just visable.      

Nikon F90X, Sigma 28-70mm/2,8 @ 50mm, 1/250sec @ f8, Fuji Provia, handheld.

week 5/2009

The Yucatan peninsula in Mexico has some good spots for large tarpon but also plenty of spots for baby poons. In this picture I intended to take a shot with the fish held just in the surface, but as I start to press the shutter the fish decides to head back to the mangroves. The quite fast shutterspeed freezes the splashing water.   

Nikon F90X, Nikon 18-35mm/3,5. 1/300sec @ f8, Fuju Velvia, handheld.

week 4/2009

This fly fishing student had a great time in the sunset and managed to hook a nice rainbow trout in the fading light. Five minutes later he walks up to me with blood dripping through his fingers and the fly hooked in his own nose.  

Nikon F90X, Nikon 24mm/2,8. 1/160sec @ f5,6, Fuju Velvia, handheld.

week 3/2009

The most important rule when hooking a tarpon is to hang on to the line as tight as you can until the hook finds a place to sink in. My friend Anders almost broke the neck on his first Belize tarpon, as you can see on pic above... Amazingly the hook came out in the first jump, despite the Stockholm NeckBreaker hookset. 

Nikon D200, Nikon 24mm/2,8. 1/250sec @ f8, RAW, handheld.

week 2/2009

Even if ice-fishing is not my favourite method, I must admit it is a really nice experience to walk on a thin layer of ice, see every rock on the bottom and have a clear blue january sky above. And when 3lbs perch hit the bait it is not bad at all!

Nikon D200, Tamron 12-24/4 @ 14mm, 1/300sec @ f5,6, RAW, handheld.

week 1/2009

Flyfishing close to a city can give some really cool angels of urban structures and lines, like this one from the harbour area of Gothenburg and the brige Älvsborgsbron.

Nikon D200, Tamron 12-24/4 @ 12mm, 1/180sec @ f8, RAW, handheld.
