My name is Martin Johansson, living in Umea, in northern Sweden. It´s a very nice place to live in if you are a fly fisherman! In less than an hour in the car, i reach several salmon - and sea trout rivers. The rise of salmon may not be comparable to some of the Norwegian rivers, but in any case, it is nice to have good waters close by.
I grew up just a couple of fly casts from Sävarån, and bought my first fly rod at the age of 11. Ever since I have been a passionate fly fisherman with exception of some years when I studied, and my my since many years adult boys grew up.In a period of 8-10 years I was a member LOOP´s team, and during that period I offered demos, guiding and other flyfishing gigs through my firm Nordic Fly Fishing. Right now the firm is passive because nowadays I want to prioritize my own fishing!
In addition to fishing in my home waters, I fish every year in Norway, most often in Namsen or Stabburselva. I also like to fly fish for pike when the season is of for salmon and sea trout. I also hope that one day be able to get back to the sea trouts in Rio Gallegos!
I am looking forward to be a part of this team because it first of all sounds fun, and I like the opportunity to meet with other people this can give, and that one thing often leads to the other.
