About Me

Hi


My name is Per Hansen, and I live in Fredensborg a railway town, 30 km north of Copenhagen and near forests and the sea. I am 69 years old, and retired from working in an advertising agency as an art director. Ted Bates Advertising in Copenhagen.

 

I have been fishing since I was a little boy. I started fly-fishing for trout in Jutland's small rivers with my uncles, and then my parents bought a summerhouse in North Sealand, where my little brother and I would fish from the shoreline. We caught Cod, Plate, and an occasional seatrout.

When I grew older, I fished the Mörrum River in Sweden, the River Orkla, Gaula, Stjördal, Etne and Namsen in Norway, and the River Bandon in Ireland. I have the great pleasure of fishing together with my wife Gyrithe. She is a keen flyfisher, and holds the house record for Atlantic salmon at 14.8 kg.!

About 30 years ago, I started tying flies as a self-taught beginner, but some of my fishing pals taught me better techniques. So here I am now. I found a lot of inspiration on different web sites, but I also have my own ideas etc. I have the pleasure of doing fly-tying exhibitions at different places, like the local library and Elsinore Culture House, and sometimes selling a frame or two.

 

My other interests are good wine, food, travel to Jutland for fishing the River Skjern, and our new puppy English Springer Spaniel. …and of course my wife! A couple a years ago, after my retiremennt I was employed as chief in Go Fishing, Hillerød, where we were agents for Orvis fishing gear and clothes. See Go-Fishing.dk

Now as a senior I have trouble with my eyes, I have AMD which give a bad sigt, so the classic is far away now.
