Pro Staff Team

Magnus Axelsson

Magnus is a co-owner of NFD and lives in Åkersberga, Sweden close to Stockholm just by the Baltic Sea with its coastal fishing for Sea Trout.
He prefer to be fishing for Salmon and Sea Trout and occasionally Rainbow's in local lakes. On the picture you see a 11Kg Salmon from the famous River Mörrum in south of Sweden.
He usually do not fish single hand rods and for Trout but joined on a helicopter trip this summer and of course he did best of everyone in the group, both in number and size with one monster wild Brown Trout of 3,6kg!!

On his bucket list there's (of course) a 20Kg sea-liced Salmon as well as a return trip to fantastic Iceland.

Ian Craig

Originally from UK but since many years living in Sweden just an hour north of Stockholm.  Ian , who is an exhibition Fly Tyer, is the man who introduced the Spey Spider flies in 2014.  Most of the time he fishes for Brown Trout and Grayling in the county of Dalarna a few hours north of the Swedish capital.  Rotälven and Österdalälven is his "go to" waters. This county is just a tiny part of Sweden but offers hundreds of rivers and many more lakes. This country is paradise for a fly fisher! Ian caught his first Brown Trout when he was only nine years young and that is still his best memory.

On the bucket list is Atlantic Salmon fishing!

Timo T Kanerva

Timo lives about two hours from Stockholm in a beautiful and "forestry" area named Bergslagen where he fish three local rivers:
Sverkestaån, Hedströmmen & Kolbäcksån
They hold wild Brown Trout but are also Stocked with Rainbow's.
During the short Scandinavian summer Timo prefer to fish in the extreme North of Sweden...for monster Char, Brown's and Grayling. The abundance of water up there is enormous.
Timo has also fished in Croatia and Slovenia and Iceland and on the current bucket list is a return to Iceland!

Mirko Ban

Lives in beautiful Slovenia which often is referred to as New Zealand of Europe (at least for fly fishers....)
Has fished the esmerald green rivers for 10 years and in Slovenia its never a far drive to gorgeous rivers like Sava Bohinjka, Soca, Unec, Idrijca, Baca, Sava Dolinka, Krka and Vipava to mention some of Mirko's rivers.
Fly Fishing is his life and he is engaged in other ways than just fooling a fish to go after the fly. To do good! So he is taking care of his local rivers as a watchman for FF Jesenice. High up on Mirko's bucket list is Patagonia and Northern Scandinavia

Torgeir Nordkild

Torgeir is lucky enough to live in perhaps the most beautiful and spectacular countries on this planet. He lives in the North near city of Tromso and fish local Salmn rivers but also go away to remote areas for Trout.  On the coast Torgeir cast for Sea Trout in the spring time before Salmon season.  Did you know that Norway has more than 850 salmon rivers??  Having said that, his mission is to land a 10Kg Salmon in his local small river....perhaps in summer 2021?

On his bucket list you find Argentina, Iceland and more rivers to discover in the Finnmark area of Northern Norway

Peter Sorensen

He lives in the northern part of Jutland in Denmark and have fished for more than 40 years.  Peter is from a family where almost everyone was fishing and an uncle even had a beat on one of the worlds most famous Salmon rivers: Laerdal in Norway.

Since several years he has spent the summers in wonderful Iceland working as a chef at fishing lodges, and of course fished for Salmon, Char and Brown Trout whenever possible.

When back home in Denmark Peter mostly target Sea Trout and Salmon. The Sea Trout fishing in Karup Å is among the best in the world, at least if you target monster size fish!
