An incredible day with sir Bauer from Kanal Gratis team at the great mountains of sweddish Lapony. 37 minutes of hapiness, looking for big pikes while sight fishing. Personally, this kind of fishing makes me crazy… Looking into the eyes of every fish under the boat while it’s following your fly, what could be more annoying ? The guide seems to be doing a great job. He comes from Tjuonajokk Fishing Camp. You will notice that some shots are really beautiful! If I had that kind of lake at hand, I would probably spend hours there! Pike flyfishing can be a real drug. The fishing as the flies conception are really interesting!
Now that you know where to get the very best firewood in the world, why don’t you try some other form of wood fire? In a Old-West style camp stove? Can you imagine the bacon and eggs you’d fry on that thing before getting to the river to chase the ghost of a winter steelhead?
I have always loved Johnny Cash. Since the day when a friend of mine gave me his player in a bus on the way to Irish western part, just saying you got to know Cash dude. Then song after song I discovered Cash loved rivers and fishing, Big River is one of my favorite for sure and the tears that I cried for that woman gonna flood you Big River and I’m gonna sit right here until I die. It makes me shiver, really. I imagine a huge and mighty river… and him on the bank with a fishing rod, waiting for his troubles to be flushed.
Here are couple pictures of Cash fishing. Just want to share a day out with him, talking about music and fish, love and rivers.
Since couple weeks , job is over taking my time and my mind. And this free morning I just wanted to escape, to take the exit way for landscapes, and adventure. Needed to feed my soul with a trip, even just an ersatz. Lucky as I am, Jeannot – from H2Ommes Polar Expé - gave me a call. You remember the two mad lads kayaking along Labrador ? Then I heard his stories about the polar trip, how to prepare route, way points and navigation, play with the tide and winds, how to manage your strength, hard times making you doubtful, the adventurer carefreeness…surrounding by mystic landscapes and black bears… well it is simple, I stayed choked ! Such a trip ! We spent together 2 hours talking travelling in the North on the phone, and me dreaming about the Pole with kid eyes. Here was the slap I needed ! A coffee break along the Labrador’s cost.
If you haven’t seen Narcos yet you’re missing something, it’s probably the best reason to suscribe to Netflix, an amazing series written by Chris Brancato, the life of Pablo Escobar (played by the charismatic Wagner Moura ) and the Medelin Cartel. You can imagine that the soundtrack will be tropical and it is! but instead of giving you the tracks just like that, enjoy this mixtape NARCOS MIX by Lobito Brigante: Noarcos Mix, it’s been playing at the office nonstop for the past weeks! Enjoy. As usual, you listen to the mixtape HERE and you paste the address of the same mixtape THERE to download it, EZPZ.
That’s new enough so we talk about it. no it’s not another watch, this watch just might be the perfect watch for fly fishermen, not only it looks pretty cool but it’s tough enough you can wear it anywher, it’s of course waterproof, the crystal is a real crystal, the mechanic is a Swiss Analog quartz movement and… the winder is on the other side of the watch so the line never get stuck under it! And don’t tell me it never happened to you… And it’s cheap. A must, Christmas being only a couple of month away.. You can find it on Escapads, the website for people who like outdoors more than their life at the office. The watch comes in several colours and with a luminescent back or needles who are really luminescent, you’ll know what time it is even in the dark hours by the river! You can choose the Aevig Corvid in Brushed steel or the Aevig Corvid Stealth black metal.
La Catedral, for those who know is a compulsary stop in Buenos Aires, of of the best clubs to dance and have fun, not one of those places specialy made for turist with Tango for lamers, no, La Catedral is the place where you find the Portenian youth with good live music, fantastic dj’s and terrific food. So when I saw that our friends from Jazz & Fly Fishing made a film with that name, I was thrilled. This film like the night club is one of a kind, a jewel from the image to the music, and the editing, so romantic, so beautiful you want to cry. Please, please, give us other films like this one, it is bliss.
