The question is not how to fish, but why you do it. The author and his fishing buddies do it out of necessity. It’s more important than life and death to them to escape the human world, step in to water and wave a stick. Left on the shore is their misery and worries. Standing in the water they find freedom, healing and occasionally a fish.
Battles are lost and won with tongue in cheek and always celebrated with mountains of cake and an endless stream of fresh espresso coffee. To the band of brothers it’s more important who you fish with than how big the fish is; except for the ones lost.
You may not learn a lot about catching more and bigger fish, but reading these stories is like holding a mirror up in front of yourself getting a little wiser. The small why is a big one.

Whether it’s on methods, strategies or flies we hope you’ll enjoy them all, maybe even consider sharing them? It’s been a bit quiet on the podcast channel since we uploaded the first ones, but we’ll fix that today.

Now we’re expanding and we hope that you will enjoy our new PodCast-channel. To open the ball, we’ve launched five podcasts.
Today it is not about pictures or films as it usually is on this blog. It’s is about fly fishing and fly tying, though. We bring you good stuff for… your ears. Podcasts are a weird kind of media, and I think around here… they are kind of underestimated. Continue reading “Listen up, guys!”
