My name is Chris Edghill, born on the island of Barbados in the Caribbean and now living in Helsingborg, Sweden - along with my wife and three children. I work as an Art Director and photographer.
I have fished from the time I could walk down to the beach only 20 feet from our house, but at the age of six I was taken by that long rod my uncle put in my hand one cold day in Scotland and when he showed me a tin of dry flies I knew this was it. Donít get me wrong, it is not that I think all other types of fishing are lesser just that I would rather do it with my fly rod. Since that day in Scotland I have fished for anything with fins both in the sea and in fresh water. This has taken me around the World a few times, from living six years on New Zealand to the other side of the world Sweden, where I have now lived for nearly 20 years.
I have caught tarpon at home that made my reel sing and my heart stop when they jumped and I have caught small trout in a stream high up in the mountains on tiny dry flies - the thrill is still the same every time. To catch a fish with a fly rod is pleasurable but equally important is the surroundings and friends where you do it.
