Torben Meldgaard lives in Sorø in Denmark with his wife and three boys.

Torben has been fly fishing and fly tying since he was 13. In the beginning, he hunted the local trout with wet flies but developed an interest for salmon and dry fly fishing – primarily in Norway. Today, most of his “fly rod time” is spent on the Danish coasts chasing down searun brown trout with his rod and camera. At home he blogs about the subject at (in Danish)

Professionally, Torben has a masters’ degree in biology (population genetics) specializing in Danish grayling populations. The degree was followed by a PhD degree about Slovenian Marble Trout. Today he works as a forensic geneticist in Copenhagen.

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
