About Me

I'm a Swedish Industrial Designer who moved to the U.S for work about 6 years ago. Having grown up fly fishing for pike, perch and occasional trout back in Sweden, fly fishing quickly became a part of who I am. Since settling down in NY I have had the opportunity to concentrate on the fantastic trout fishing we have up state. You will most often find me on the streams up in the Catskills but I do hope to explore more of the magnificent waters this country has to offer in the years to come.

Rod building to me is the happy marriage of my passion for fly fishing and my profession in product development. The feeling of knowing all the effort that went into making it makes those memories out on the water even more special. My interest in building bamboo rods came about as a reaction to many of the "modern age" products we surround ourselves with. Working in product development these days mean fast paced production and short shelf life. Which neither is good for the quality or this planet we call home. Rod building to me is in every way the complete opposite of this and that brings me a lot of joy.
