Chris Nygren

My flies are the result out of nearly 45 years of experience out fly fishing around the world.

I have come a long way since the image above (and I have stopped with V- jeans and got a better fishing hats :-). 1974, Chris Nygren work in the traditional fishing shop Power Valls in Gothenburg where he really was able to learn all about the different fishing methods and get to know other like "fish crazy" people.

During adolescence, it was a lot of tournaments that occupied all the free time. Everything from Mete- to sea fishing competitions became with varying results. We were a bunch of sea fishing interested young people who formed the fishing club "Jet Set" in the early 80's and we were successful, with each gains on sea fishing Championships in 1990 where Chris was 2nd individually as well as first in the team competition.

We also won GHFK-Cuppen 5 consecutive years. Chris also won Vallgravsmetet in Gothenburg in 1977 and 1990. But it was fly-fishing as the biggest challenge for both of them. Chris moved to Jämtland to realize their dreams Norrländska big trout in Hotagen currents, the amazing Harrflugfisket in Edsforsen also attracted a lot, he has now been fly fishing guide there for a long time. Many very famous Swedish fly fishing profiles have often come to Chris to go fishing with him in Edsforsen, including the author Rolf Smedman. Chris has also guided for many years in Namsen salmon and captured over 100 salmon on the fly. Many of flugmönsterna on this website are designed by Chris and Jonas Sander, a good fiskevän many years. Nowadays guides Jonas after massher in Thailand's jungles and big game fishing in Malaysia.
