Tuomas's Biography

I was born in Kalmari (Saarijärvi, Finland) 1983. My fishing history began when I was four years old. My father took me with him to fish with a hook and worm. In 2005 I started to fly fish and was instantly "hooked". Fly fishing is my lifestyle and my favorite places to fish are the rivers.

The first place I fished was the river Konttijoki in the village of Mahlu. The river is a challenge to fish, but even more so for a beginner because of limited space for a backcast. I tied my first flies in 2006, starting with the basic stuff like woolly buggers and small streamers. Timo Leinonen taught me the fly tying basics. Then over the years I admired Harri Lehtonen's and Rane Olsen's work with Rangeley style streamers and decided to give it a try myself. Harri and Rane have given me so much information about featherwing streamer tying techniques. Tying classic streamers is my way to honor the history of fly fishing and tying, but I also like to develop my own patterns.

The GFF money box

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

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

Long story longer

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.
