Elektra

Hi! Right now, I´m working my ass off in the theatre, where I´m part of a play that opens this saturday at Det Norske Teatret in Oslo. The play is called Mourning Becomes Elektra (or Sorga kler Elektra in Norwegian), written by the American playwright Eugene O´Neill. It´s a rewrite of the oldest surviving play… Read more »

Shape Up!

Once again, the great Swedish photographer and flyfisherman Knotan has pointed us in the direction of an outstanding video. This one is perfect for a grey monday morning. Get out of your chairs and shape up!

Farewell to Keihärinkoski

We usually don’t post and link other than stuff in English, but after reading a fantastic Finnish blog post about Keihärinkoski rapids, I felt I just had to share it here.

Pontza's 1st of April photos

As a reply to Fredrik’s hilarious description of our 1st of April trip, I will now post some photos in behalf of my new alter ego Ponza Luvainen. Pontza indeed has vodka in his vains and that makes him immune to the cold water and wind. When others lied in the sun and warmed their… Read more »

Falling down on the ground

I have had two very busy weeks, packed with teaching, gigs and rehearsals, fly tying, grass fishing and a lot of other strange activities. Yesterday we were finally allowed to go for the sea trout again. After this long and boring winter. While Tapani is spending his time color-correcting our documentary and Håvard is sewing… Read more »
