My name is Peter Scheffler I am 56 years old, I started fishing when I was six years old, because we lived only about 300 meters from the sea on Sweden's west coast so there were good opportunities to fish. After several years of elite sports, fishing was allowed to rest during this period. I took up fly fishing and fly tying when I had reached my goals with the sport and then invested in becoming as good as possible, and developing my fly fishing and fly tying to what it has become today 21 years later. I have had the privilege of being invited to lots of fly fishing fairs for 10 years back in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, England, Ireland and Scotland ... so far!
My hallmark at the fairs has been salmon and sea trout flies. I have a weak heart for the classic fly fishing since five years ago, where I now use splitcane fly rod, in between classic salmon flies in my fly fishing dressed in Tweed of course! I apply different fly fishing techniques with both one-handed and two-handed fly fishing on salmon, sea trout, grayling, trout, char, rainbow trout, pike. I have been living with my family 240km from the Swedish west coast for seven years and have about the same distance to coastal fishing as to mountain areas in Sweden and Norway.
In addition to fly fishing and fly tying, I also paint salmon-like fish and have openings at regular intervals. I look forward to many years of exciting fly fishing experiences as well as participation in fly fishing fairs around the world if given the opportunity!
One of my Absolutely favourite fishing fly for Salmon is the famous pattern of Garry Dog
