This picture shows a pike killing a popping MegaDiver at a nearby lake. This
is one of those rare occations when you start to press the trigger and during
that brief moment something happens in front of the camera. I just wanted to get
a picture of the fisherman in the morning light, and came out with a pike
crashing through the surface and while water drops are still in the air.

My friend Peter and I had a wonderful sunset by the coast, and when the sun
and sea turned blue, pink and orange at the same time Peter hooked a good searun
browntrout of some 6 or 7 lbs. I fired away with my camera and when he netted
the fish the film ended. I searched my camera bag in desperation and realized I
lost my case with fresh film. So this is the last and only picture of a really
good trout in a marvellous sunset....

I am no big fan of winter fishing but it is quite a big sport up here in
Sweden when we get cold winters. But I feel we get clear evidence of changes in
the climate up here, and it was several years ago we got a winter like the one
pictured above. And all the spots in the picture is not dust on the slide, it is

We were heading up a new river on the south island of New Zealand, and the
small road (or rather farm track) followed the bank. I could not take my eyes
from the water and my fishing companion Niclas told me to concentrate on the
driving. Five seconds later I kept way to far to the left and we were totally
stuck in the middle of nowhere. We had to camp on the road overnigt and the
following day we found a helpful farmer who pulled us out of the ditch.

Master caster and
former world champion Leif Stävmo handles the two hand rod by river Säveån
outside Göteborg, Sweden. It takes a lot of frames to get good pictures of lines
in the air. The key is a place with sunlight on the caster, a dark background in
shadow, a fast shutter speed and colourful line. And dont forget to lock your
exposure value on the caster, otherwise it will not turn out well.

Just a picture from a mobile phone camera, but with my biggest pike on the fly
so far, 10,2kgs/22lbs... Caught in shallow water in the Baltic sea outside Blekinge in southeast

I am working on a set
of pictures of flies and it is amazing how a simple Zonker strip streamer can
look like a salmon fly in the right light
and tied in the right manner.

This summer I had
danish journalist Jacob Sörensen in the boat togehter with Niclas Andersson. We
fished hard long into the dark and fog started to roll in from the ocean. We
decided to not try to find a better camping spot in the black night, but just
unfolded our sleeping bags right on the cliffs and tied the boat in some rocks.
The nights was cold and damp, and in the morning we realised everything was
covered in tern-shit.

This is a picture from a foggy
morning some days ago, and I just fired the camera into the rising sun in front
of a small bush near the lake, without any bigger plans. When I got home and
transfered the files to the computer I almost fell off the chair as I saw this
giant fish crusing under the branches. Five seconds later I realise it is a log
in the water, casting its dark shadow onto the flat surface. But for a brief
moment I thought I had found a lake in Sweden with 60 lbs darkbacked tarpon!

This is a picture of my fishing companion Thomas
Lindberg from Piteå as he hooks a nice rainbow in the wonderful Hunter River on
the south island of New Zealand. Both me and our third friend Niclas sat ready
with our cameras as Thomas put the fly over the fish time after time. When the
fish took we both fired 5fps at exactly the same time, so this picture is
available from two different photographers but looks identical. Copyright issue

Please take a moment and
have a look at the gallery with pictures taken by my late friend Björn Sundquist
from his pikefilled home waters of Blekinge, Sweden. Most pictures taken with an
Olympus Digital compact camera, and again it is proven that it is not the
equipment who makes the picture, it is to be at the right place in the right
Picture from a trip to Swedish Lapland in 1999. I came back home with 12 rolls
of film and turned them in for developing at the local lab. When I came back to
pick up the pictures the lady at the lab looked very nervous when I stepped in
and she had a white envelope laying at the counter, not the normal sheets with
slides. When my film went through the machine some error occured with the
cemicals, and most of my pictures turned out with a strong orange cast.
Picture above was one of the first ones and got through ok.

Final day of the searun browntrout season on the Swedish west coast. The weather
Gods threw all possible things at us, but in the evening it all settled and
cleared up. Final trout of the day was slightly coloured and just beautiful in
the setting sun. Now the winter will seem a little brighter until it all starts
over April 1:st 2009.

Flyfishing is more about having faith in the fly in the end of your line, than
the pattern itself. Niclas Andersson in an early morning moment trying to get
into that hidden mood when every cast is accurate, every leader straight and the
fly is just right, no matter what.

Last year when fishing for searun brow
trout in the city centre of Stockholm, a massive snowfall started. It was a
special feeling to sit out in the belly-boats and see the snowfilled clouds roll
over the city. The feeling switched from special to strange when I turned my
head and find this creature behind me! It is fishing companion Peppe who shouts
over the water ´Jag fiskar med mask..!!´ (I am fishing with worm..!!) which in
Swedish is a funny sentence as mask is the same as worm.

This image is captured one evening
during the same trip as the picture from week 36. Bear in mind that this is in
the middle of july, right in the middle of the Lapland summer above the Polar
circle. One day you can walk the mountains with shorts and T-shirt, the next you
need all layers of clothes you can find in your backpack.

This is an old, grainy slide from the
upper reaches of river Kaitum in Swedish Lapland. Me and my friends were flown
out with an old floatplane to a remote lake and then walked to another system
for pickup a week later. We had minus degrees every night and the fishing
suffered from the icy northerly wind. One of the nights the weather improved and
we got some really nice grayling on deep fished nymphs. To catch a leaping fish
in sharp, unblurrded manner on picture is a diffucult task, and this is my best
attempt so far.

Everyone who has been fishing in New Zealand knows that it can rain.... a lot!
The NZ rivers are famous for rising very fast due to their often steep drainage
and large catchments. Pictures above shows a small tribuatary outside Reefton
and thwy whey were captured just 12 hours apart.

This is one of my favourite pictures from
my September 2006 trip to Kamchatka, Russia. In the background the beautiful
silouette of the Opala volcanoe and a starlit dark blue sky, in front the

A couple of years ago we made a kayak trip
in the area of Dalsland in southern Sweden. One morning we had fantastic light
over the lake with mist rising from the surface and the sun climbing up over the
