Meanwhile Upstream - Ep 1

The main character in the first episode is the guy we call "Amish, Okto, Arabian, Spade". A god among gods.
I call the series "Meanwhile Upstream" for no particular reason except the well known fact that wherever you fishing it's always better upstream! There will be a second episode, and if anyone likes it I might continue with a third episode.

I tried to make the music to this one, hope you like it. Thanks for watching!

Something about salmon fishing...

A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelaelven - part 6

The sixth and final episode (part 6 of 6) of A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelälven Valley.

In this episode we follow John and Stefan on a fishing trip up to the head waters of the Vindelälven river. To get the opportunity to fish in the limited accessed section, an application has to be submitted no later than May 1 to the county board administration of Västerbotten. Then a lottery will be conducted in order to randomly distribute the currently maximum of 100 fishing days that are granted in the section. The area has limited access in order to maintain the high quality of fishing and to minimize the pressure on the nature of the area.
Johan and Stefan stops, however, one night in Ammarnäs village before they head out to the mountains. Stefan tries his luck after the huge trout that annually migrate up from Lake Storvindeln and up in the Vindel River for spawning. The average weight is over 3.5 kg of these magnificent trout and there's alot of work going on with management to preserve one of Sweden's last strains of large migrating brown trout.

A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelaelven - part 5

The fifth part (Part 5 of 6) of: A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelälven Valley.

In this episode we follow Erik and Stefan who go up to Gargnäs/Råstrand Fishing Area to try to catch salmon. They have heard that salmon fishing can be very painstaking and in order to improve their chances they ask for help from the local expert, Daniel "DJ" Jonsson. He is the one who has the best knowledge of all the pools in the river and where salmon are found at the moment.
What they could not guess was that the DJ had another ace up his sleeve, a local method to get the salmon to strike. Let's watch and see if they succeed in their fishing.

A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelaelven - part 4

The fourth episode (4 of 6) of A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelälven Valley.

In this episode we first follow Petra when she was patiently waiting for the massive hatches of the big may flies to begin, but she's a bit too early. Fortunately, there are always alternative water to fish along the river valley so she goes to the Gargån river for some grayling and trout instead.
Later, we follow Stefan who obviously had a big fish to rise to his dry fly but we'll wait and see until the end of the film how big it was. Rolf gets angry and decides to fish with two other fly fishing legends, Jimi and Erik, in Sorsele area for big trout.
Rolf is so inspired by the fantastic fishing that he swallows his pride and brings Stefan there the following weekend. Its midsummer, and then you have to choose if you want to catch big fish or eat delicious herring and dance around the maypole like the old Swedish tradition.

A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelaelven - part 3

The third part (3 of 6) of A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelälven Valley.

In this episode we first see the incredible power of the spring run off in the Vindelälven river when Petra Sjöberg stops at Vormforsen rapids to study the tribute song "Änglamark" written by Evert Taube to preserve the river from hydro power development.

Later, we follow the ardent fly fisherman and fisheries manager Daniel Holmqvist to two of the river's tributaries, Manjaurån and Gargån. Both of these waters are restored after the timber floating era and the fish stocks has exploded after the efforts. Daniel tells us more about this while he's pulling fish after fish.

A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelaelven - part 2

The second episode (2 of 6) of A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelälven Valley.

In this episode we follow Viktor, Tor and Stefan, who in June head to the restored tributary "Ruskträskbäcken" for both grayling and brown trout.
We also get to meet fishery conservation area chairman Kaj Gambäck who enthusiastically tells about how they work with management to promote fishing which they have done very successfully with the modern applied regulations.

In June, the normal spring run off the main Vindelälven river is high, but fortunately this period provides the absolute best fishing in tributaries and in the smaller lakes and ponds found along the river valley. Brown trout tend to be very active and can surprise with really fine specimens.

A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelaelven - part 1

The first episode (1 of 6) of A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelälven Valley.

In this episode we follow Tor and Erik in search of the big spring pikes with their fly rods in the Umeälven river delta. In this area there are excellent opportunities for both to capture the many and very large specimens during the time of year when the pike aggregate for spawning, which normally occurs in April or May just after the ice has left the river. Catch and Release of fish is encouraged during this period to secure reproduction.
We also get to see beautiful pictures of pike aggregated for spawning, but these Tor and Erik wisely leave undisturbed.
During May the grayling also aggregate for spawning and Rolf head up to a spawning site in the Sorsele area to capture great pictures with his camera equipment.

Fishing: The Ume River delta
Fishing regulations: Free fishing with a lure to the public.

A dry fly love song

I bought a 30 dollar guitar during a trip in New Zealand, and my friend Peter had a mac with "Garageband". So obviously I had to remix/rewrite a song to spread the word about true fly fishing! Footage from 2 good days fishing in NZ
