CHASING SEA TROUT WHERE THE WORLD ENDS
Words: Steffan Jones
They say to get over a problem you must first admit that you have one. I have an addiction, affliction – call it what you may. The sea trout is my mistress, my temptress and I yearn for her attention. She keeps me up at ungodly hours, provokes me, teases me and leaves me wanting more. Sometimes she is cruel, sometimes she is kind, but no matter what her mood to me there is no finer treasure to be found.

ALASKA BLACK AND WHITE …AND AN INTRUDER ON TOP
Words: Thomas Woelfle
The Piper Super Cub flies slow and low. It feels like in the old movie “Out of Africa” except I’m in or more accurately over Alaska, and there are no lions or zebras down there, I don’t look as good as Robert Redford and of course I’m not the pilot.
LANGÁ – SALMON FISHING FOR SINGLE-HANDED RODS

FEELING COMFORTABLE – INSULATIONS
