Came back this morning from a one night backpacking trip. I tested two new purchases. The Swedish Bacho Laplander saw and the Hultafors Classic camping axe. The axe is very lightweight roughly 1.25 lbs and about 10" in length. It's great for carving or light campfire duties. The saw is awesome with a safety mechanism in form of a button. High quality Swedish steel and it's twice as fast in cutting as my previous saw Coghlan. The blade is very stable and has no give to speak of. Both items are very high quality from Sweden and will last a long time if taken proper care of.

Southeast's Best Fly Fishing, by James Buice is absolutely the best book on the subject if you are new to to area or just want to visit. It's also good as entertainment for all of you who already own a lot of the books dealing with this area. It has superb photos and a lot of detailed access information as well as fly recipes etc. Highly recommended.
Karin Alvtegen's latest "A probable story" is probably her best ever. It's a departure from her usual psychological thrillers with murders and deceit. This time is family drama but not in the conventional sense. It's a suspense of a different order. It makes you think about your life and circumstances and yes for many readers, it will be a look in the mirror. Highly recommended. Her earlier books are out in English but I'm not sure if this one is translated yet. Highly recommended reading.
