I had to pinch my arm twice, check out it wasn’t 1st of April, and run a virus control on my computer when I saw this headline on the Finnish news: Katri Helena took place in the womens’ fly fishing championships in Finland.
For any Finn, Katri Helena is the face of adult oriented schlager pop in Finland, and has been for decades. Quite surprisingly, she indeed did take part on the fly fishing competition last weekend and did pretty well, too. With a 47cm rainbow trout she took the 5th place out of 10 competitors.
How did this happen? And has she seen our version of her monster hit “Katson Autiota Hiekkarantaa” (“I’m Gazing at the Deserted Sandy Beach”) on the Karaoke video we published?
No matter what – our paths seem to mysteriously intertwine. Katri, if you ever read this, why don’t we play a gig or go fishing together?
