I started to tie flies in ’78 when I was 13 years old. I been working at the Sollefteå Ambulance Service since ’88.
I mostly tie flies for grayling and Brown trouts. I love to fish graylings with dry flies. I’m very interested in the fly fishing/fly tying history. I know there’s lots of new flies and new fly tying materials but I do prefer “old style” flies like Quill Gordon, Hendrickson, the beautiful Fan Wing Royal Coachman and I use natural material, as much as I can, for my flies. And, yes, I fish with bamboo rods.
I have been a guest fly tier at the Catskill Fly fishing Center & museum (only Swede so far). In addition to being on the Whiting Farms Pro Team, I’m a member of the Catskill Fly Tiers Guild, Daiichi Pro Team and a Regal engineering Pro team.
