I live in the small town of Älvdalen in Sweden where I run a Fly shop and guide service , Älvdalens Fiskecenter, with a good friend. I also write articles about fly fishing and I never go anywhere without that camera hanging over my shoulder.
My big passion in life is fly-fishing streams, creeks and rivers. I was born and raised near river Österdalälven and I’ve been fishing that river and its tributaries since I was a kid.
In the fall every year I usually end up slinging bugs in Montana, USA. Dry fly fishing for spooky trout is what it’s all about for me, though I do hook up with a grayling or two now and then.
Been fly fishing for more than 35 years and I’ve been tying flies almost as long. The first steps in the art of fly tying were taken in a time when tying materials were stolen from mom’s knitting bag and tinsel was made from candy paper.
My tying is ruled by my fishing, since I intend to fish with all the flies I tie.
The mayflies and caddis of the streams are dominating and that means more small flies are tied than big ones.
I like tying variations and putting my own touch to some of the flies, so there’s always some experimenting going on during the dark hours of winter.
