IT’S NO SECRET that we’re fans of the guys over at Podsol Fly Fishing (podsolflyfishing.com), a motley crew of film-making fly fishing creatives, consisting of filmmaker/musician Rolf Nylinder (our main profile in issue 11), jazz musician Håvard Stubø (aka, Jazz and Fly Fishing), Kristian Mattson (aka the musician ‘The Tallest Man on Earth’) and Markus Lemke (a former DJ and the organisational brains behind their business). The business? So far they have a range of caps, T-shirts, Swedish coffee gear and a sweet 5-weight rod (check our Salad Bar gear pages).

Podsol fish, for the most part, in and around the Arctic Circle in Sweden, while our stomping grounds are in Southern Africa. But, despite the physical distance between us and the slight differences in our fly fishing worlds, we like to think we’re aligned. Other than the humour and the distinct impression we get that they do not take themselves too seriously, one of the most striking things about Podsol’s films is the original music they come up with. It helps having some musical heavy-hitters on your team.

So, for the Issue 22 playlist, we got each of them to weigh in with a selection of music they are loving. Enjoy.
