Simon Graham - "Mr.Pike"
I started out primarily targeting saltwater species in South Africa but once I moved back to Europe in 94 I crossed over to pike on the fly and haven’t looked back since. In 2004 I moved to Finland where I completed a wilderness guide course and now run Baltic pike tours as well as have a brand of pike, and soon to be saltwater flies, called “Baltic pike flies” which I distribute throughout Scandinavia, Finland, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia and also now to the Czech republic.I spend 6 – 8 hrs a day in font of my vise tying flies…A dream job, coupled with that I’m a mad for it pike fly-fisherman living in one of the most prolific pike waters in the Northern hemisphere, Replot island, other than that….nuff said really!
If any of you manage to get to the Swedish fly fair in March then pop round for a chat. See you there!
