Danish fly tyer and angler
Per Gade lives in Denmark – about 100 kilometers from the capitol Copenhagen. He has been an angler for half a century – and the last fifteen years fly fishing and fly tying have been his favorite hobbies.
Fishing to him represents the possibility to be close to nature, peace of mind – and an everyday adventure.
He works as a journalist in one of the most busy newsrooms in the kingdom: the everbeating heart of DR, the National Broadcasting Company in Denmark.
His favorite material when tying flies is wool from the family cats, and it seems that fish like to eat cat… The catflies have been very efficient, when Per Gade fish at the local shores for coastal seatrout.
But he also uses other materials – as shown here with The Fluff.
