Fly Casters

Mads Birkholt

Mads Birkholt has been an instructor in the Danish Sports Fishing Association since 2001. Mads lives in North Jutland, just outside Brønderslev, where he was also born and raised. He lives only 5 minutes’ drive from Ryå, where he fishes for brook and sea trout.


Already at a young age, Mads was fascinated by fly fishing, and ever since then he has preferred this type of fishing. The many hours with the fly rod in his hand have made Mads a skilled fly caster and fly fisherman.


It is still fishing for brook and sea trout that is preferred, and still in Ryå. The trips also go to streams in Himmerland, on the coast or to the Danish salmon rivers, where especially River Skjern, makes Mads pack the two-handed rod and head west.


Mads is passionate about sharing his skills and knowledge, also on a daily basis. Mads is a teacher and nature guide, and he has a completely natural pedagogical approach to teaching.


The casting demo will be based on Mads’ own fishing and the casts he uses on his home waters.
