The Lost One

You’ve already seen what happened during One Magical Day this summer. We experienced very heavy caddis hatches and caught lots of beautiful trouts on dry flies. While we others were catching trout after trout, Fredrik was hit by some sort of  Curse. The fish neglected his flies and he was very unlucky this day. The… Read more »

President Kekkonen and the album

We’ve been working intensively on the Jazz & Fly Fishing album the last couple of weeks. Me and Fredrik finished the last overdubs and the tunes are now being mixed.

Patriot flies

I’m from Sweden, the small country far far away up north. Our neighbors are Finland and Norway. If I go to Norway, it is possible to buy (almost anywhere) “the book about stupid Swedes”. If Norwegians go here to Sweden they can buy the same book but with the very different name “the book about… Read more »


I’ve been fishing as long as I can remember. I didn’t always used to fish with a fly though. Being finnish, I grew up with Rapala, probably the single most effective fishing lure there is. They still catch good fish.

JFF at Rise Film Festival

That is until now, when RISE Fly Fishing Film festival sweeps across the globe with fly fishing film events. Soon they are coming to Europe, visiting London,… Read more »

Miles and More

To be quite honest, I´ve never liked the autumn. Sure, it´s pretty and everything, but there´s something really gloomy about it. Spring is like 6 months away. Well, there´s not much we can do about that. However, autumn is a very good time to read books. This is what I´ve been reading lately: Miles Davis… Read more »

Everything is captured with a special high speed camera.

Jff Flying News or “JFFFN” will be posted the 14th day of the month – every month – forever. It will take up important stuff but also crap information. You decide what’s important… Read more »

The Curse

Fly fishing can really make you superstitious. While Tapani, Joona and I had One Magical Day of flyfishing, Fredrik couldn´t catch anything, and got really frustrated. And that´s not normal. Fredrik is a highly skilled flyfisherman, and more often than not, he´s the one who catches the big one. So there was definitely some strange… Read more »
