Fly Tyers

- at the fly tyers island and at the exhibitors

Peder Wigdell

I’m 55 years old and I have been fly fishing and tying flies for about 45 years. The first 35 years was just tying the necessary flies for my own fishing but the last decade I have put a lot more energy and creativity in to my fly tying, I’m tying for fun and not only for fishing. My favorite is dry fly fishing with light equipment and occasionally tossing some streamers. Favorite fish is grayling, trout and char but a pike on a popper can be most satisfying.

I love spending time at the vise, trying new techniques and materials, creating semi realistic flies, not for fishing but more as art.

I also write articles for the Swedish fly fishing magazine Flugfiske i Norden, mostly about fly tying. I have tied flies at several Swedish fly fishing fairs before but this is my first time tying at the Danish fly festival and I’m really looking forward to it.
