Have you caught any LAX lately?

All through the north of Sweden you can fish for all sorts of fish: perch, pike, trout and the king of all fish – the LAX (salmon). The salmon is really hard to catch because when it starts swimming upstreams (to make baby-lax) it pretty much stops eating.

Last night I was out with @cmhelg, his dog Bruno and my producer @filipburman for my first ever fishing with casting rod. A casting rod is a fishing rod with some kind of winch. You throw it out as far as you can and then you use the crank to reel it in. Unfortunately we didn’t catch any fish, but it was a great experience.

Why go fishing when you can buy it from the shop?

It was an early morning start at 6am today, we were heading out to the sea for some Ice-fishing with Tomaz from Cykel & Fiskecenter. Steve couldn’t really understand the point of fishing that early in the morning, or he couldn’t see the point at all “why are we going fishing, when we can buy it from the supermarket”. Maybe Steve doesn’t realise that the food in the stores has to come from something, they don’t just grow in boxes. In the end it turned out really good, we had a sunny morning and Steve reeled in a nice whitefish.
