Hi! In between fishing trips right now, trying to make the most out of the way-too-short summer above the arctic circle. As ususal, the fishing has had its ups and downs, with everything from huge hatches and big, steadily rising fish to weeks with gale force winds from the north and very crappy fishing.

Here’s a short film from a trip a couple of weeks back. One man, one camera, one fish, one situation. Plus some experimenting with the out-of-focus shapes with different lenses. Music by Jazz & Fly Fishing. Enjoy! Focus from Jazz & Fly Fishing on Vimeo.
Hellau! So far, J&FF´s Friday Jazz has presented music from the 50s, 60s and 70s, so I guess it´s about time we give you some contemporary sounds. In 2010, the brilliant Swedish trumpeter/composer Goran Kajfes released a great album called X/Y. The opening track, called Sand Boogie, is a real knockout: it has one of… Read more »
Hellau! Just back from Gothenburg, where we recorded the soundtrack for our upcoming DVD (working title: Season 2 – F***ed for Life) and did some additional shooting – interviews and such. Despite Fredrik and me getting sick with some kind of stomach flu that we probably got from Joona (thanks, man!), we were highly productive… Read more »

And at 68°26.3028′ N, where I´m sitting as I´m writing this, it´s pretty damn dark, too. And everybody´s flat broke, hung over and fat after Christmas´ insane excesses. Well, at least things are moving in… Read more »

For this first edition of Friday Jazz, we´ve found a real treat for you: Miles Davis´ legendary performance at the Isle of Wight festival in 1970. The 38-minute performance took place in front of… Read more »
Greetings! A brand new video with autumn dry fly fishing: Later – H.
Howdy! One night about a year and a half ago I was sitting in my rehearsal room, playing through my old sketchbooks. I have piles of those music sheets with small phrases, ideas, tunes, and I’ve basically written down this music stuff since I was a teenager. I found a lot of stuff I had… Read more »
I had a day off and decided to go for a fishing trip to a put and take lake to let out some fishing steam. My usual fishing buddy Fredrik was busy with other stuff, but luckily I found a “victim” from the jazz club a few days earlier. My old friend Johan, who usually… Read more »
Howdy! It’s good to hear Håvard’s still catching trout up north despite the disappearing daylight and descending temperatures. I haven’t unfortunately had too many fishing opportunities lately, but there’s some other nice stuff going on: Last weekend I went to our summer cottage in Central Finland. I installed the software called Magic Lantern to my… Read more »
