Looks strange but I think he is measuring how far his back cast reaches.

Although the pic is from December 2011.  I have been a bit lazy with my cameras but I will start again soon both with autumn colors and the blue season in Lapland.  I have been too busy with forest birds  in Lapland and wild boar hunting in Hiiumaa, Estonia.  Lots of efforts, not so much catch . We will try white fish net fishing in Inari, Lapland later this month.  I hope for  better luck with fishing than we had in hunting.

River boats at Teno river

130730-teno-1DX-70-200-1.4x-c3-RISL0559I tried to teach my sons salmon fly fishing at  Teno river, which is the best salmon river in Europe.  This summer has been very different, temperatures plus 20 for long periods.   If anglers like this weather salmons do not.  They get lazy and just sit in the deep pools in the river.  Anyway,  I think I was able to put some idea about this sport to my sons and their mates and hope to see them again at the river with long rods in their hands.  Most of the boats were also staying unoccupied.  These are used to take fishermen to the river.  Only locals can own and use these boats.  Salmon fishing tourism is  very important to local people here in the very north of Europe.  Utsjoki, Lapland.  FInland.

Wall Painting on a Bridge Pillar in France

I found this wall painting when fishing in France. This was on the river side pillar and could not be seen from the road.


Ukko close to eye

Has been quiet for some time due to summer activities. Here is a picture taken at lake Inari in Lapland. The dot close to Timos eye is the  Ukko island in lake Inari.  That island is an old holy place of Saame people.

First of March in Inari

We visited (together with my brother Heikki) Neljän Tuulen Tupa in Kaamanen, Inari.  They opened this season today and we were the first customers. There will be visiting many bird watchers and photo takers soon.
