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 »
