  1. I applied for that one as well not accepted yet though Nice photo above. Good colors.
  2. Thanks very nice of you.I did join what I think was that group at least (the not closed one?)
  3. Do you mean the one earlier with the sunrise? Ive learnt from so many sources its a bit hard to point at one. But since I used Photomatix to combine image on that specific images this is proberly quite right. http://www.hdrsoft.com/resources/tutorial_basic/ I use several softwares though. Normally I use Lightroom and Photoshop. (Like on the night image) Good sources for editing in general that Ive found online is. Aaron Nace at Phlearn.com and Jimmy McIntyre at http://www.throughstrangelenses.com/ The latter is much about digital blending/hdr. Thanks everyone for the nice comment. I dont work with photo its just a hobby. I sell fishing gear for a living.
  4. First session of the year. Blanked but 'twas was nice to get out. Uppesittaren by Simon KG, on Flickr
  5. Its an HDR made of 3 expossures if I remember correctly.
  6. To zero a jrc/berkley scale you just tap the on/off button
  7. That looks like a really pleasant water. From tuesday morning: Bivvy life by Simon KG, on Flickr Not technically from the bivvy but still.
  8. Winternit might be possible with a really good sleeping bag but my first feeling is that the tent must insulate badly. However you do get away from the ground.
  9. For summer months that one seems darn smart!
  10. Allmost forgot. There is also this little old gem. The dude owning the site is a brit who lived in sweden until just some years ago when I heard he moved back but he did fish a lot when he lived here and the site is still quite informative. Some of the facts regarding the sizes and such may not be fully up to date but its a good list and written in english. http://carpoholik.tripod.com/id15.html
  11. If you are on facebook the lake has its own group https://www.facebook.com/groups/228490307186093/?fref=ts
  12. Ok in Borås you have the lake Ballasjön quite near. Ballasjön is quite a popular lake stocked with fish up to 35 lbs. I actually took my first carp there when I first began carping. (nowhere near 35lbs though ) Location and the phone number to Leif which owns the license on the lake http://svenskakarpklubben.com If im correct I believe the license for Ballasjön actually comes for free as member of Svenska Karpklubben. Several brits in the club as well. I live 30+ miles away from Borås unfortuneately.
  13. Thanks. Yes its a rather nice little gem. The upper image is actually taken a bit up in the forrest which is on the right side of the lower image.
  14. Much more tidy swim From this spring. Tysta larm by Simon KG, on Flickr
  15. Vy från tältet 2 by Simon KG, on Flickr Morning mist.
  16. I am a swede Where in sweden do you live?
  17. Good tips there! No I dont make the bags at home just grind the mix and put it in a bag rather than having the ingredients and a krusha with me to the water saves some time as well.
  18. Both really. Ive allready started to leave stuff at home to check how often I really feel that I need it. I am at being able to carry all my gear to my swim at a normal distance from my car in one go, without barrow. At the moment I can do on 2 go without killing myself. So just weight saving tips really. I can give some, as mentioned only bring the baits you will use, Grind your stick/pva mixes at home and therefore leave the pelletbags/krusha and so on at home. Leave the terminal tackle at home and only bring the needles and premade rigs. Only bring the leads you need (last time I had 6 leads with me, and brought 6 home) Ive just started to experiment with this so just wanted to bring this up to see if anyone has any experience with giving the gear a diet I normally fish evening to midday (overnighters) and often in swims I cant get to with barrow.
  19. I am in the phase when Ive realized that even though its very funny having loads of gear its killing my back bringning half a ton of gear doing overnighters. So Its more and more interresting for me to consider lightening up my gear. Ive allready simply skipped a lot of stuff I normally bring and Ive gone to allways just bring the baits/popups I will use and simply pre-bait with whats left (not pop-ups obviously) for the next session before I leave. What is your best tips when It comes to what to bring and what to skip. Which products really help bringing the weight down and so on. I am considering buying titan or perhaps even better carbon banksticks since Ive come to notice my stainless ones proberly weigh some kilos... Ive sold one of my bedchairs and will most likely switch it for a JRC X-lite bedchair.
  20. Found this some years ago. Note that its several videos and this is part one. Shows just how much baiting with small particles on heavily weeded spots really can make difference. I replicated this last year and "opened" a spot in heaviest of weeds and then caught in it.
  21. I have a syndi stocked with huge grasscarp where the weed goes from bottom to surface literally in the whole lake. I fish it with solid bags, chods and long hooklengths on clips. I also mostly fish very much in the margins which allows me to drop the bait with a visual of the presentation. If i were fishing for normal carp in such a venue i would proberly spod proper amounts of particles over where i wanted to fish since the carp can sometimes open up the swim by trashing about at the bottom in search for hemp etc.
  22. That club looks a bit odd on the mat Cool looking koi. Very compact fish.
