"I have been fishing for as long as I can remember and fly fishing since I was thirteen. My fly fishing career started with wobbly fiberglass rods in the beginning of the seventies and, with the exception of a few “dark” years when I trained to become the best javelin thrower in the world (and failed utterly), I’ve been fly fishing ever since. Years upon years of fly fishing AND fly casting, equally balanced, constitute the most important part of my “education” when it comes to designing fly rods and fly lines.

If fishing was the only thing I did, I would not have been able to focus so much on how rods and lines perform and how different adjustments from my side affect their performance. Furthermore, I wouldn’t have known how to establish, and fine tune, some kind of extra sense regarding the cooperation between “The Three Musketeers of Fly Casting”: Rod, line and human being. Once a nerd, always a nerd! God knows how many hours I have spent fly casting during certain periods of my life and from these hours my thesis and philosophies about fly casting have gradually formed. The practical applications of this theoretical starting point has led to a fly casting concept based on optimal learning through direct feedback and a basic understanding of the principles behind good fly casting.

Somewhere along the way I started getting alternately annoyed or satisfied with different combinations of rods and lines. Rod actions, different kinds of materials, stroke lengths, line profiles, head weights, densities, coating qualities. Combining philosophy, practical applications and wishful thoughts about better rods and lines, led to cooperation with a couple of Scandinavian developers of fly fishing equipment - including LTS and Zpey, where I took part in designing rods and lines for both.

This time, with Scierra, I have gone all in, and I’m responsible for 48 new rods and 62 new lines that will be in the shops soon. However, I couldn’t have done this without the invaluable help from Robert Peetz (rods) and Knut Ekelund (lines)".
