One man, one camera, one fish, one situation. Plus some experimenting with the out-of-focus shapes with different lenses.

We've started working on a brand new documentary about ourselves, and here's an edit of some the first material we recorded during winter/early spring 2011. We´ll record throughout 2012, and the film will be out in the early months of 2013.
Northern Exposure pt II: Trout Latency. On a blistering hot summer day last week, I travelled to one of my favourite trout rivers up north. The fishing was very slow indeed, but eventually I managed to find two big trout. The first one ignored my attempts completely in the ultra-bright conditions, making me feel clumsy.
The second one was rising steadily in the late evening, gulping down whatever insects the stream carried. It took my mayfly pattern on the first cast.

"Cows and Flies" - Another beautiful spring day above the arctic circle. This time, the weather was on my side, and I had a fantastic day, catching several beautiful trout on the dry fly and communicating with the local cattle. Cows are much more intelligent than you might think!
A huge storm was coming in from the North Atlantic, giving me just a few minutes to fish the calm before the storm.
Driven to a frenzy by the riverÂ´s feasting trout and further aggrevated by the sound of some guy drilling a hole for a flag pole outside his summer cottage, I experienced some severe strike problems. Somehow, I managed to cool down just before the storm hit the river and made fishing and filming impossible.
Since we have had so much hard time finding the trout lately, I thought it would be a good idea to remind ourselves what it looks like.

There was thousands of visitors at the Jonkoping fishing fair. So many that we were confident we would sell out our cd's in no time. After Joona had played a beautiful intro and solo on the Hatch followed by my excellent bass solo, we were expecting to see a long queue to for cd's and autographs.
But what?! Not single one on the sales desk? A catastrophe!
It seemed like they didn't even realize what they were missing: The only record in the universe that combines these two worlds - jazz, and fly fishing - in a perfect harmony.
This wasn't going to happen. Not to us. We were bound to make a difference. Go fishing. Make music. Make love. Make peace. Buy the Jazz & Fly Fishing album "Slow walking water".
Jazz & Fly Fishing was at Sweden's biggest fishing fair at Jönköpings Fiskemässa.
We had three questions to ask from everybody:
1. What's your biggest fish
2. Do you listen to Jazz?
3. Have you heard about Jazz & Fly Fishing
We got some pretty good answers. Check it out.
