Even if the winter has been a bit too warm compared to what's normal here, we have had some nice weather, and this always gets me to long for some fishing. I know I should be staying at home finishing off orders, but I can't help it. i got to go catch some fish, so lately I have been working early in the morning, and late in the evening, and running off fishing during the day.  For some time Sonia and I had been talking about testing out Digertjärn, and exploring the fishing spots there better, so today we decided to start our day there.

20170113 01As we all know, Friday the 13'th is supposed to be an unlucky day. Today it was just that in a funny and irritating way that just made me laugh and enjoy the day so much more. We had had a couple days of snowy and some warm weather, and today the winter came back. With the skies clearing up and the temperatures dropping, Sonia and I decided to try a different place.

My reasons for choosing a different lake where several, but mainly that I was getting sick of key members in the local fishing club fishing several times the quota in Hundsjön and then posting the fish for sale on the internet. I can understand a child getting carried away, but a grown couple where both are front figures in the local fishing club, and both working full time and no need for the fish for their dinner table, acting like common poachers. Another reason was that I wanted to try a lake more challenging. Svartsjön in Ängesjö is just that.

Hundsjön 20161228 02Hundsjön is a very difficult lake to figure out. One day you can have great fishing, and then you'll have several weeks where the fish seem to be all gone. Other days you're hard work pays off, but only after hours and hours of effort. Today was one of those good day. Not only was the fishing good, but the weather and entire atmosphere as well.

How to spend Christmas day.

Hundsjön 20161225 03In the Nordic countries we celebrate Christmas eve, not Christmas day, so while we have our big Christmas dinner and open presents on Christmas eve, Christmas day is usually spent lazing around the house, watching Christmas shows on Television, or visiting friends. When I started ice fishing here in Sweden in 2007 I started my own little tradition, and that was to spend Christmas day (December 25'th) out on the ice fishing. This is something that has stuck with me since then, and even now that I have a family I keep my tradition. My spouse and our daughter are both welcome to join me, but they both have chosen to stick with the traditional "resting day" in fromt of the TV, or having fun indoors.
