Traditional fly fishing guided trips.

All my services  are spoken in fluent Dutch, English, Swedish, Norwergian and my German is okay.

My approach as a guide to teach you fly fishing is a little bit different then the normal fly fishing guide. Yes I do focus on casting, entomology and fishing techniques within traditional fly fishing but always with simplicity in mind. This means that I will show you that fly fishing does not need to be as complicated as it seems!

 I will teach you that what you need to learn to fish successfully in Trysil with the right amount of casts, proper presentation of the fly, the right fly choice, which technique to choose under which circumstances and how to read the water. 

This sounds very complex but you will see that during the trip everything will be explained step by step and in a very simple and easy manner so you can learn also quicker. This will result in a effective way of using your fishing time where you very soon will learn how to fish instead of just learning how to cast.

When you are already more advanced in fly fishing then tell me what you are capable off and what you want to learn or experience so I will adjust my guiding to that. 

Although the Trysilriver is a fast flowing river, proper presentation casts are needed to present the fly in the best way possible, here you will see that even a micro drag can make a huge difference in catching  just a few small fish or catching a couple more with some good sized fish to go with it. Casts like the Parachute cast, the Reach cast, the Roll cast but also mending the line are casts that has to be mastered. Depending on the situation we will use techniques as high sticking,nymphing, dry fly fishing, wet fly fishing, or a dry fly with a dropper. Each technique has its place and charme. 

If you have any special requests, such as a dinner at the waterside with local specialities, just ask and we will arrange it for you. The most important task for us is creating that unforgetable fishingexperience for you that you will remember for a life time!

What I can recommend for you during a week stay? 

To get the full experience and learn as much as you can there are to possibilities,

1 is to book a full day where i show you how to fish and read the water so you can use that what you have learned during the rest of the week.

2 is to book 2 fully guided days or 1,5 guided day. This way you get really submerged into everything that is of importance; the casting, entomology and choosing the right flies, Reading the water choosing the right technique for that situation and it will be build up in easy to remember steps that you can take with you on Your future fishing trips. 

The last one has proven to be the most succesfull way for people that want to really learn and get the full experience of what Trysil has to offer. I have seen people change their skill level completely within the two days package. Mainly because they know that they have two whole days to learn and experience what they came for and there is no time pressure present. And increasing skill level leads to increased catches and most importantly, a much better experience while fishing!


A whole day guided trip;

During a whole day I have the time to really show you the beauty and the charm of fishing in Trysil! You will get a complete insight in the flies and techniques that we use and why I simplified it so much and why the catch-rate is higher this way. I can explain you how I fish under different circumstances with just these flies and how multi - purpose these flies are. At the same time I will show the most successful techniques that go with the flies. Off course will this day be completely tailored to your needs and skills. After this day your view on the complexity and simplicity within traditional fly fishing will be changed for ever which will only work in your benefit and make you a better fisherman for it.

A half day guided trip;

We will focus during these 4 hours on the main casts, techniques and flies that we primarily use in Trysil and during those circumstances at that specific fishing spot. It will be a crash course that shows you that you only need a few flies and have to be capable of casting a few casts to catch your fish with one or two techniques. From that perspective you can start learning from the basics up.
