week 26/2010

One of natures small wonders are water lillies early in the summer, spreading their leafs from the bottom.

week 25/2010
On the Storá Laxá salmon river we found a tributary up a narrow canyon where a magnificent waterfall came down. I was one of the coolest places I have ever been to, and we were alone in this beautiful place.

Nikon D200 @ ISO 100 | Tokina ATX pro 12-24/4 @ 24mm | 1/40 sec @ f5,6 | handheld.
week 24/2010

On the last hours of the last day I landed two pike +90cm, and two +100 cm, all on shallow water, floating line and a big flashabou fly. Then I had to lay down in tha grass for a while.

week 23/2010

The captain of the boat tried to convince us to use conventional tackle, but we relly wanted a sailfish on the fly. On day 5 Niclas played all the cards right and landed a beautiful sailfish. We never touched the big gun spinning gear.

week 22/2010

To see a float tube out on the water might me a stange sight for many non-fishermen, but to see it strapped on the back of the same fisherman on his way to the lake may be even stranger.
Nikon D200 @ ISO 100 | Tokina ATX pro 12-24/4 @ 16mm | 1/250 sec @ f5,6 | handheld.

week 21/2010

When fishing from a boat on the coast you always have respect for the rocks and boulders just in the surface, as you do not want swell to put you on top of it all. With a float tube you manouver with ease and get really close to fish those hotspots.
Nikon D200 @ ISO 100 | Nikon 80-200/2,8 @ 110mm | 1/200 sec @ f4 | handheld.

week 18/2010

A while ago I took some of my ´old´ raw files from my first digital SLR camera, a Fuji S2Pro, and imported them into LightRoom. I was amazed how much better the pictures turned out after export, compared to the software supplied with the camera which I used in the beginning, seven years ago. Some day I will take 3,5 year of Fuji raw files and develop again.

A VERY small fishing gear shop captured just after the sun set and with a mix between natural
and artificial light, somewhere in the Caribbean.
Nikon F90X | Sigma 28-70/2,8 @ 28mm | 1/15 sec @ f4 | Fuji Provia 100 | handheld.

week 16/2010

Sunsets are normally best in colour, but with some strong graphic elements they can also look good in b/w.
Nikon D200 @ ISO 100 | Tamron 28-75/2,8 @ 28mm | 1/200 sec @ f5,6 | handheld.

week 15/2010

week 14/2010

A picture captured before 9/11, when you still could pack your fly boxes in the carry-on luggage and
dream yourself through the long flight.

week 13/2010

After a long day with nasty weather it finally clered up when the sun went down. Spot metering off the grey parts of the cloud and contrast slightly corrected in LR. 
Nikon D200 @ ISO 100 | Tamron 28-75/2,8 @ 35mm | 1/160 sec @ f5,6 | handheld.

week 12/2010

This is an image captured by fellow photographer Niclas Andersson/  He used a waterproof Richo G600  and I was holding a good searun brown by a rock where waves crashed in. There is another pic in the same series with the fish fully visable, but this image has a lot of action. I was totally soaked after this session....  

week 11/2010

I climbed the rocky hillside of the river and found theese growing among the stones. A big aparture made the background soft with only the closest branch in sharp focus.  
Nikon D200, Tamron 90/2,8, 1/100 sec @ f2,8, handheld.

week 10/2010

On San Miguel island I took a shower in an hotspring in my underwear and my travel companion snapped a quick picture of me in the waterfall. Of some strange reason this slide were sitting in the collection sent to a Swedish fishing magazine, and picture above were printed on a full page in the article. Hmmm....
Nikon F90X, Tamron 90/2,8, 1/125 sec @ f5,6, Fuji Provia 100, handheld.

week 09/2010

The moment of success. To see a big northern pike come close in the end of the fight is one of the most exiting moments in fly fishing. Carefully slipping your fingers under it´s gill cover and finally get a good grip. 
Nikon D200, Tokina ATX 12-24/4 @15mm, 1/60 sec @ f8, flash -1,0, handheld.

week 08/2010

We experienced some bad weather during the trek on San Miguel, one of the islands in the Azores Islands.
But suddenly the sun broke through and highlighted a single white sailboat out at sea.
Nikon F70, Sigma 28-70/2,8, Fuji Provia 100, handheld.

week 07/2010

In some rivers it is easy to find the right spots and holding places for brown trout, but in picture
above from river Säveån it gets almost silly.
Pentax Optio W80, all auto mode, ISO 100, handheld.
week 06/2010

This picture is taken with a submerged waterproof compact camera and pointed up at the fisherman, shooting through line and weed laying in the surface. It takes clear ocean water to get reasonable sharpness in pictures like this. 
Olympus Tough 8000, all auto mode, ISO 100,  handheld.

week 05/2010

Even if mr Anders Forsberg has caught hundreds of large pike he´s got a big smile on his face when he releases
this 27 lbs pike taken in shallow water in the Baltic sea, Västervik.
Nikon D200, Tokina ATX 12-24/4 @14mm, 1/60 sec @ f4, flash, handheld.

week 04/2010

There is always discussions about equipment, but finally it boils down to present the fly where the fish are.
In the background of this picture you see a plant where warm water spills into the sea, and attracts searun
browntrout when the water is cold. 
Nikon D200, Tamron 28-75/2,8 @75mm, 1/300 sec @ f5,6, handheld.

I don´t know, but I just like the feeling of this blurry, from-the-hip shot though the windshield one early morning. You have just been picked up by your fishing mate, there are two cups of hot coffe in front of you and the sky starts to turn blue over the hills. You have nothing but a long day of fly fishing ahead of you. 
Pentax Optio W80, 28mm, all auto mode, jpg.

week 02/2010

All strange things can happen when you are fishing during the holiday season in south Sweden, but when Peter almost ran into a naked German turist with his FishCat, I just needed to take this picture. 
Nikon D200, Tamron 28-75/2,8 @75mm, 1/200 sec @ f4, handheld.

What is the matter with guys going on a fishing trip togeter, and the quite suspect priorities that occur?? On my last trip we were three boys, all with small children back home. This means sleep is one thing that´s always on the minus side of the equation called life. But when it comes to fly fishing trips, this melts away like snow in April. We stay up late, laugh & tell stories and have a bunch of cold ones and then wake up long before sunrise.
What the heck, we can sleep when we get old.
Canon G11, 28mm, manual WB, handheld, JPG.
