Trout season is over but I still like to spend time at the water. On sunday I saw the first spawning brown trouts of this season – a wonderful sight. And a great feeling, to know that nature still works in that little creek!
For a long time already I have been taken by the river Mörrum in southern Sweden. And since 2017 I had the opportunity to fish there for salmon and seatrout several times. This year, another trip was planned, and despite all the uncertainties in the […]
Summerdays with white cloudlets travelling through clear blue skies… the meadows green, the birds singing and insects humming everywhere… it is hot and sometimes thundery. During the days, the youth is fooling around in the little creek in front of my house, a long queue at the ice cream palor…
