For the second time it’s time for me to head over to Jönköping for a weekend filled with gaming. Here are some photos from Dreamhack Winter 2013.

After watching some of April Vokey’s amazing work I tried to tie some flies inspired by one of her videos. First time I’v used spun fox hair with a dubbing loop and using rubber legs but I’m pretty satisfied with the results.
We have now gone live with version 2.0 of http://www.flypatterns.co featuring almost no new functions or content, but the codebase has been rewritten from PHP to Ruby on Rails and is running on a Apache / Passenger server.
The new layout is the first step towards making flypatterns.co the best source of flytying resources there is and hopefully, from here on it’s development will be more fluid and faster.
The guys up in Ammarnäs recommend the following flies as a basic setup.
Gold Headed Hare’s ear Nymph
- Hares Ear Nymph #10-14
- Klinkhåmer Special #10-16
- Special Pupa #12-16
- Goddard Caddis #10-14
- Elk Hair Caddis #12-16
- Black Gnat eller Jassid #14-20
- F-Fly #-12-18
Went for my first hour of sea trout fishing. Damn the water is still really cold.
The times when you have the opportunity to say those words, those are usually very good times. Winter is bad.
I was planned to go fish last sunday both as it does to commonly, other stuff got in the way. I wasn’t really planning on fishing today but after reading an article about a father taking his sons fishing there was no doubt in my mind that I would.
When I got home I quickly tied two boobies, a popper and filled my ask with some extra woolly buggers and other streamers.
I went down to the local river and started to rig my gear, stressed because of the limited sunlight. Started fishing a popper downstream but I felt uncertain about it because of the water temperature. After a quick fly swap where a pink dog nobbler with a golden head was my fly of choice I enjoyed fishing for about 45 minutes before the sun was gone.
It was getting dark but the city lights gave me enough vision to continue but after 10 more minutes the loops on my rod had started to freeze up and I had to give it up for the evening.
Internet pioneers, that’s what these guys are.
