England. UK. Over in England right now. I´m on tour around London for about ten days. The weather is fantastic, people friendly, beautiful buildings, and the food is… ok. Since we were in France we got a bit spoiled when it comes to the food quality. But I really love ale pie, nice! I also have to say that the street-food in London is very nice. Indian, Chinese or Creole food was lined up along the streets… everything is everywhere. God bless immigration! Imagine to live without all this fantastic culture and food that now is available in big parts of the world. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any fly fishing store, lets see what the next days will bring.
When traveling with the jazz and fly fishing machine, I always get SNUS from Håvard when I run out of it. This time, I´m touring with a different group, and Håvard is not with us. That basically means that I very soon will run out of SNUS. If you wonder why I write SNUS with capital letters it’s because I miss SNUS. SNUS – what is that? It is the Swedish royal way of filling you body with nicotine. The thing is that you can only buy SNUS in Sweden and Norway. If I won’t get SNUS soon, I’ll get crazy, childish, not very smart and very emotional. Only for a while hopefully. The only thing that helps me during a “trying-to-stop-snusing-period” is to run or eat fat chocolate. Since this England tour involves spending a lot of hours in the car, it also means eating massive amounts of chocolate!
I long for running, jumping, swimming, SNUS and SNUS. I Got, simply said, a little bit of running and snusing abstinence right now. Is that good? Is that normal? I don’t know! Anyway, since I right now cant do any working out sessions, I looked after some pictures where we in JFF are exercising. This is what I found on my lap top. Check out Håvards running-style, he is so happy when he gets the possibility to work out. Another detail is that he always runs in the suit-jacket! Next time you guys go fishing – remember to snus or run a little bit, it will give you a stronger body and more fish. If you stumble and fall, you’ll get more time to spend on the noble art of fly tying! /Fredrik, England, Europe, the world
