Happiness

If you wish to be happy for one hour, get drunk.
If you wish to be happy for three days, get married.
If you wish to be happy for a month, kill your pig and eat it.
If you wish to be happy forever, learn to fish.
— Chinese Proverb

“Tied with pride, fished with attitude”, the new edition “Issuu 5” of Baltic Pike Flies is out and exceeding my expectations. I’m proud to say I’ve had the pleasure of using these flies, and can tell you that they look and move as good in the water, as they do on your computer screen. In his own words…

Baltic pike flies Issue 5 has been a while in the making but I finished it last night. When you do something like this you suddenly realise how much time and effort must go in to producing quality productions like “This is fly”, “Catch Magazine”, SID, Bloodknot to name but a few. Anyway I hope you all enjoy it. Best viewed in full screen mode.

Die-hard fishermen, like baseball players or golfers, usually have their own ritual which becomes part of their recipe for success on the water. And then of course if that fails, there is always the “fish story”.

Lord, give me grace to catch a fish

So big that even I

When talking of it afterward

May have no need to lie.

If pictures are worth a 1000 words, video must be worth a million…

If you can watch this and resist the urge to start planning your next fishing trip…

…you’re not human.

If you’ve been thinking about trying to become a fly fisherman, this my be what pushes you to take the next step.

Enjoy!

While my fish-blog pal Simon is trying to keep busy and pass the winter hours away tying those fantastic flies of his, I wasted spent an hour of my own surfing the web to take a break for work and enjoy, albeit virtually, with some of my hobbies, mainly fishing and off-road.

I came across a few interesting things, and one thing in particular that kind of combined both hobbies… the Wilcraft.

I was surprised I hadn’t seen anything about this before. It seems to me this is the ultimate ice-fisherman status symbol. And as you might have guessed, it’s from Minnesota, because lakes and ice are abundant.

If you’ve got about $10 grand, and a place to… dock? park? this craft you can show up on the ice next season to impress (or scare) the crap out of your fishing buddies.

Check out this video (…you think we can get them to change the music?)

Hey Simon, perhaps you can get one customized with a fly tying station!
