Jon Boats Part 5
Monday, 20 September 2021
After selling the PolarKraft, I went boat-less for several years, doing most of my fishing out of a kayak. When the boat bug struck again, I ended up with Jon Boat # 4, which came in the form of an Alumacraft 1648.
23 Years of Sexyloops!
Tuesday, 21 September 2021
Man, where does all the time fly? So, tomorrow actually, Sexyloops turns 23. In two more years, by which time I assume international travel will be permitted again (!) we plan an exciting gathering to celebrate 25 years, which we will have here in the jungles of Malaysia - there are several resorts so you won’t all have to sleep on the roof of the Battleship.
A hell of a lot of water passes under the bridge in 23 years. A very large part of Sexyloops has been our readership and communities. I say “communities” with a plural because we’ve had about four, as one might expect over such an extended time.
Front Page writers have been many over the years. Some have lasted a few months, many a year, and then we have the long term writers, who last much longer! Viking Lars has been writing for Sexyloops week in week out for almost as long as I have!
And that’s really how it all works. Sharing information and exchanging ideas only works if there are people sharing and others reading! So really a HUGE THANK YOU to all you readers and all of our wonderful FP contributors over the past two decades who have made Sexyloops what it is today. :)))
23 and Kicking
Wednesday, 22 September 2021
Bernd went to the dentist today to try to get a date. Apparently she is pretty hot. However he’s not so keen now and didn’t get the filling he wanted. In fact “agonising pain” were his words and not mine. So it gives me a chance to talk a little about fly tying…

Went out for the first seabass trip of the autumn on Monday, earlier than I ever usually do it as I prefer to wait till the weather starts cooling off, maybe late October. It was nice to be out in flip-flops and a Tshirt rather than bundled up like a polar explorer.
Hiding the fishing spots
Friday, 24 September 2021
Last weekend I was rafting guiding. On Sunday we had our own rafting trip on lower part of Kitka. It was great day and I was able to observe river more than normally and spotted some nice graylings. Weather has been quite good for fishing but I haven’t been able to go fishing. There is so much other things to do before winter.
Flymphs and sharing
Saturday, 18 September 2021
A couple of weeks ago I saw a handful of flies in a Facebook-group on historical flies. Many of you who read my FPs will know why I’m a part of such a group. It really is one of the best Facebook-groups I know. Full of knowledgeable, nice people, excellent fly tiers from all over the World, even though most (I think) of the posts are in the Scandinavian languages.
Home (nearly) BFCC Event
Sunday, 19 September 2021
We have just returned from the latest BFCC Meeting at our home location (well nearly – it was just on the Welsh-English border) and we had a glorious day weather wise, but sadly the wind was light, although we can tell that on another day the venue will provide a good wind for potential record attempts. Saying that, we did have a few records broken today, first Kei beat the accuracy record that Zhongxiang set at the last meeting, but he only held the record for 4 and a half minutes before Zhongxiang beat him and won the record back.
