Jämtland, Sweden, July 2015 A.D.

The last week of my summer-holiday my wife, our youngest daughter and I spent in the Northern province of Jämtland. When we drove up the 700 kms and almost were at our destination my wife, who was driving, shouted: “Björn!” (Swedish for bear). I lifted my camera and here is the result. It was the first time ever that I have seen a wild bear.

When we parked the car we found these beautiful orchids.

My goal for this summer was to catch at least one trout or grayling on dry fly. During the week I caught several graylings, of which some ended in the frying pan…

I would like to give my sincere thanks to:

  • Fanny and the late Mel Krieger for inspiration and tutorials in casting. http://www.melkrieger.com/
  • Mr Christopher Rownes  for showing me the beauty of fly casting, and for kind support and encouragement. http://www.christopherrownes.com/
  • The Guideline team, for providing excellent and affordable equipment.    http://www.guideline.no/se/
  • Mr Harry Salmgren and Mr Mike Tebbs of the Grayling Society for a very warm reception to the Society   http://www.graylingsociety.net/

My goal for the next summer is to catch fish on flies that I have tied myself.

The weather was not the best, but at least we had a couple of beautiful sunsets.
