Hi Paul and everybody else!

My name is Joakim "Piffen" Hammenstig and live in Stockholm, Sweden. I began flyfishing in May this year if you don't count that short time when I was 14 and used a fly rod to break the soundbarrier and destroy flies. I have been reading a lot on the Sexyloops site since around april I think but didn't check out the Board until last week... But now I am here to learn a lot so I can cast better. I have just been training a bit tonight and managed to carry 20 meters and my loops are becoming a little sexier and I am quite happy with that :D

Actually I have ordered a foxy HT 6 PRO to funky up those loops a bit more :yeahhh:

See you all around!

Hello Piffilus,

I'm Australian, but also live in Stockholm (well, Värmdö actually). I fly-fish mainly around Västervik for both abborre and gädda. Unfortunately I don't have a boat in Värmdö (I use my girlfriend's parent's boat in Västervik) or even a car driver's licence for that matter, but I can still walk down to the boat ramps from my house and fly-fish for abborre (I'm going to target ide maybe this afternoon for a change). I'm also a keen fly-tyer and like inventing and testing my own patterns.

Feel free to add me on Facebook if you like (and anyone else reading this) - it's Vic Webster. I think I'm the only one in Stockholm. My profile picture is me with a horse; and if you want to meet up for a beer, some casting practice, or some fishing, just send a message.

Cheers,
Vic.

Hi Vic!
We seem to be in the same situation, boatless, car and drivers license-less. I mostly try to catch rainbow trout, no luck so far but have at least caught a 3 kilo, or so, pike with my HT 6.The first fish that really have been anything to count with on a fly rod.

Thanks Thomas. Looking forward to tie some flies with the Jurassic Hare and reading the book I bought from you!
