I had my first vise at the age of 7. It was made by my grandfather. I tried to imitate the flies I saw in books , or in my first flybox. I can remember Red Tag´s and Pheasant Tail Nymphs. I still love those flies, and like to tie them.

I prefer Grayling and Trout fishing in my home river, Gimån. But there is no specie I won’t try to catch on a fly. Some Rainbow trout in my club water, Sea trout on the coast, landlocked Salmon in Vättern with the belly boat.

I keep my tying simple, with the focus on appearance and function. It don’t stop me to try a perfect Catskill Dry or an realistic nymph.

I will tie some foam Ants, and emerger patterns.
