My name is Per Hansen, and I live in Fredensborg a railway town, 30 km north of Copenhagen ther allso hold the Queens summer Resident, and near forests and the sea.
I am 70 years old, and retired from working in an advertising agency as an art director and creative director.
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 when my parents bought a summerhouse in North Sealand,bettween Elsinore and Gilleleje, 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 once the River Bandon in Ireland. The most of the time 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 35 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 ( Steve Fernandez ), but I also have my own ideas - the Xmas fly, who i won a competition i USA and the Red Hot Chilli, The Funny Thief 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 at www.Skovbjerg River Lodge.dk,its a wonderfull place, River Karup, and our English Springer Spaniel.and of course my wife!
A couple a years ago, after retirering I was employed as chief in Go Fishing, Hillerød, where we were agents for Orvis fishing gear and clothes. See http://go-fishing.dk/ They are up front....
But now i have a trouble with my eyes, i have ADM = age deformation of Maluga, which do i are going to Loose my sight...but the traetment to that are injection in the eye with "Lucentis" so we all hope its stabilized it.
