I ́ve been fishing since i ́ve been able to walk and spent the last 16 years fly fishing.
Who introduced you to fly fishing?
In my view, the passion of fly fishing is more the thing around it than catching many and big fish. In a good story you tell about your adventure and how you tricked the fish and not how much it weighed.
It’s about being in the nature to observe them and possibly catch a fish. But even if you dont make a cast a day, you were fly fishing.
Can you tell us a little about your home waters and the fish you pursue there?
Well, I have many different waters nearby, there are rivers with a good run of Searunbrown, one of the best Pike waters in europe ( Rügen ) and many lakes but my “Home”water is the danish coastline where I pursue one of my biggest passoins, sea trout’s.
Many anglers are of the opinion that seatrout ́s are the “Fish of 1000 cast ́s” You can ́t spot them like a browntrout and rarely watch them eat. But there so many factors to learn as wind, temperatures, water turbidity, vegetation and the food of the fish so that the seatrout is only of 10 or 100 cat ́s . I don’t know any fish where frustration and happiness are closer to each other. It ́s like a passion of passion.
What’s the height of the season for you? What time of year is your personal favorite?
The highlight of the season for me is the spring, when life in nature wakes up and the fish eat as if there is no tomorrow.
What are your favorite travel destinations?
My Favorite is and remains Scandinavia, I have been able to see many beautiful places but in no country do I feel like there. It ́s like coming home after a long time. Also you can do everything in your waders an there ́s beer for every meal.
What are your favorite travel destinations? What’s on the bucket list?
Definitely a trip to the Jungle for Golden Dorado. As aggressive as pike, jump like trout and look like a cop, that must be cool.
Which rods do you fish?
In my car is always a 6 rod if you are stuck in traffic for a long time, with this class you can do a lot of stupid things such as popperfishing on ASP the “German Tarpon”.
What’s your current go-to fly?
A must have for me is the Gammerus on the coast called “Seaweed-runner”, its the smallest but most effective fly for sea trout the whole year and you can use it for Brown, grayling, Bass, Carp, ASP and other species too.
