Eric Arbogast

Staff writer from Luxombourg

Born to fish on June 19th, 1971 in Luxembourg, but definitely forced to work, right now as an Administrative Agent for the Chamber of Commerce of Luxembourg. My fishing interests include fly tying, rod building, casting clinics; in freshwater I key on Trout, Salmon, Pike; in saltwater Bonefish, Jacks, Tarpon, Barracuda, Tuna, Dolphinfish and a host of snapper species have fallen for my flies. Although I mainly use the long rod, I occasionally throw plugs, spinners and spoons (and sometimes bait(!!)) at the fish. The fly fishing virus has kept me going for about 18 years now and trips to Alaska, Cuba, Egypt, Florida, the Rocky Mountains, Southern California, New England, Sweden, as well as short trips to neighboring countries in Europe have somewhat soothed the disease's symptoms. I hope I won't be cured!

My other interests incude: Shooting (Cowboy Action), all kinds of firearms, but especially guns of the Old West, ammunition reloading (just like tying flies, I have to roll (stuff) my own); Sports: Weightlifting (12-weights!), Ski, Basketball; Movies, Magazines and Books about my favorite pastimes, Whiskies of the World (don't drink and drive!). I am getting a hang on horsemanship as well. I enjoy meeting new people that have the flyfishing "Thing" in common.
