My stay in Laponia, Finland, 2012.

Summer up north was fine. Good weather with enough of everything, fine balance with some rainy days, but mostly overcast. I had a nice flow in most of my projects; getting firewood for a long time, restoring buildings, training and at last i did lots of fishing. Mostly we caught perch, pikes and some smaller trouts. So my intake of protein this summer was based on fish...Some sausages went down too.

Mother with nice pike.

Cousin with one of the pikes she caught.

A fishcatcher to have some trust in.

No road to this lake. Only a narrow path leads us to this remote
clearwater lake.

An afternoons catch.

Jani in Livojärvi with some nice perch. Spectacular weather that evening.

One of my best shots this summer.

Look at the colours on the perch. A typical clearwater fish.

Around a half kilo each...

This is a good way to cook fish. With a Finnish muurikka.
