Been away fishing

Once more I have to excuse myself for not taking care of my blog. Well, anyway here I am...

My brother and a couple of friends took a few days of for going up north to wet our lines in Lars-Åke Olssons Idsjöströmmen, located in Gimdalen. The place in Sweden if you aim for the "lady of the stream" or the Grayling. This strem contains loads of big nice Graylings so at this place even I couldnt miss getting a fish or two.

This time was a little special for me as I recently got my self a Ulf Löfdahl Cane rod, a 7" #4. For the occation I tied up a couple of #16 Quill Gordons, classic rod - classic fly.. Don´t wan´t it another way..

Said and done... A sip of single malt, a nice cigarr then of down in the water. Splitcane, Quill Gordon and Baetis Rhodanis hatching all over, what could go wrong.. on my third cast this year..

Gottcha.. And with this my new sniper rod in this heavy stream and a Grayling 45 cm, well do I need to tell you it was funny? The fight took some time but offcourse it was worth it.

A little later during the day I got my biggest one this weekend. I took it on one of Roy Christies fantastic back to front emergers, thank´s Roy... 50 cm big.
Believe it, it is me, and it was I who got them nice fishes.

  2. Lovely fly, sweet rod and fat grayling Nik. All looks and sounds perfect.


  3. Yep.. Jonas, it was I. We fished the Stavselforsen on the saturday, not even close to Idsjöströmmen in my opinion.

    Thank´s Andy, the bigger one was a true hog. Took me a while on that #4 canerod:-)


  4. Yore right Niklas, Idsjöströmmen is really nice. I will not return to Stavselforsen, there is 1000 of places better than that.
    See you at your flyfishingfair in december :)
