Still up north. Still fishing, taking photos and filming, trying to squeeze as much blog material as possible out of the way-too-short subarctic summer.
I´ve had some really good fishing sessions during the last weeks, catching several good fish and even a couple of big ones on the dry fly. The high-jumping trout on the video screenshot above was caught during a good mayfly hatch in one of my favorite rivers. The camera was rolling on a tripod behind me, and as an added bonus, Gisle Helgesen, trout fisherman par excellence, arrived just as I hooked up with the fish. He filmed a little bit of the fight, and afterwards we had a great fishing session, catching a couple of good ones on camera. So stay tuned for new videos.
Another expedition coming up in a couple of days – I´m going for big trout in a remote wilderness river somewhere above the arctic circle. I´ll keep you posted!
