Karoliina Koljonen (FI)

Karo fell in love with pike fishing already at the age of seven and after getting her first flyrod in her early teens, she started fly fishing for grayling and brown trout in the Finnish rivers. Over the years the hobby has grown to new dimensions when Karo has, for instance, expanded her hobby to salmon and seatrout fishing with DH rods. Nowadays Karo mostly fishes in Finland, but a few times a year you can find her fishing in Scandinavian rivers. However, especially in the early season, Karo likes to take her belly boat and head to the South coast of Finland to chase pikes. The passion for fishing doesn't seem to have faded at all during the years, on the opposite, her eagerness  for sharing and creating unforgettable fishing experiences drove Karo to start her fishing guide education last year. What happens after the school remains a mystery for the time being but Karo hopes that the future will be at least as fishy as her life at the moment. For more photos of Karo's adventures, follow her on Instagram @Karokoljonen.

Sanna  Koljonen (FI)

With her twin sister Karoliina, Sanna was introduced to the world of fly fishing at the age of 13 but it wasn't until 2014 when fly fishing became a big part of her life. What Sanna loves the most in fly fishing are the amazing places it takes you to, being in the nature, meeting likeminded easy-going people, continuous learning, and last but not least, catching big fish. If you ask Sanna, fly fishing at its best is those beautiful hazy midsummer nights full of greenness and humidity, only the surge of the rapids, the mosquitoes and the laughter of good friends breaking the silence of the intensive anticipation rising from the presence of big fish. Sanna fishes for various salmonid fish species but the past few summers she's been focusing more and more in salmon fishing - a trend that seems to continue also in the upcoming season. Indeed, Sanna is an adventurer, a spokesperson for sustainable migratory fish stocks, a fish hugger and devoted catch and releaser but most of all, a salmon fisher. Once the season starts, you can find her fishing all around in Scandinavian rivers chasing the Baltic/Atlantic dream. For more photos of Sanna's adventures, follow her on Instagram @sannakoljonen.

Torben Pedersen (DK)

I grew up in a fishing family in Skagen, northern Denmark, but moved away as a teenager. At that time fishing, and especially fly fishing, really got hold of me. Over the years I have been travelling a lot and on most trips I bring my fly fishing gear, and it has given me many great moments on the water. For the last 20 years, salmon fishing and seatrouts fishing has been my main focus. River Skjern and River Store å are the two salmon rivers where I spend most of my time. River Karup is the place i fish for seatrouts in the night time. I also spend my time giving courses, guiding and doing demo days. Flytying is another big hobby and passion of mine and I am an ambassador for Futurefly.dk. I am looking forward to meeting you all and hope to see you by the water as well!

Danish Coast Mafia (DK)

This is a group of three anglers from the border between Denmark and Germany. Danny Vollertsen comes from Aabenraa in southern Denmark.

Fly tying is a big hobby. Ralf Meyer was born in Hamburg, early moved to Sylt, to windsurf. Hobbies today: photograph and film.

AMBASSADORS

Aitor Coteron (ES)

I caught my first trout when I was 12 years old – that means 46 years ago. More than twenty years ago I took proper fly fishing. Since then I have been studying casting mechanics in depth. For several years I was administrator of the Spanish section of the Sexyloops board, regular contributor in casting forums, writer for the Spanish fly fishing magazine Danica and avid consumer of all info —on the net or on paper— regarding fly casting and fly fishing in general. I passed the Instructor test of the Spanish fly casting certification (PAIL) in 2006, the FFF CI test in 2009, and have been teaching fly casting for around 15 years now. I have fished in Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, USA, Argentina, New Zealand and Zambia. My casting and fishing musings can be found on Vimeo (https://vimeo.com/aitorc) and on my own website (https://onemorelastcast.net).

Charles Jardine (UK)

After very nearly fifty years in the fly fishing business – and on a global stage – you would think there is little to excite a diehard angler. Not so. Charles is quoted as saying: “The prospect of working with Guideline is genuinely thrilling. Having been part of an industry surrounding the sport I love, for over fifty years you would think that the horizons become limited. Nothing could be further from the truth. Guideline embody a new era and absolutely fresh thinking: They are exciting. To be able to work along side my son Alex, Lewis Hendrie, Jim Curry and Christopher Rownes adds to the already exciting dimension. And to get to know the Scandinavian staff inside Guideline and product manager Leif Stävmo will definitely keep this old chap on his toes.

Cohn O'Dea (GB)

Cohn's introduction to fishing began as a poachers son aged 4 by carrying the rods and observing at Taymount in1974. His father (Cohn Snr),master fly fisher, J.T Third and Tay legend George McGinnis were his mentors and inspiration to learn, refine and improve all aspects of his casting repertoire and expertise. For him fly fishing on the river Tay has a special attraction. He has a complete symmetry with the rivers mystical union, unique challenges and ever changing moods; He continues to pass on his passion for salmon fishing teaching and advising anglers from around the globe who visit his beat on this mighty river. With his life long obsession, dedication and commitment we are proud to welcome Cohn as a Guideline ambassador and part of the Guideline family.

Jan Eckmann (CH)

«Fly fishing is much more than an aesthetic method of catching fish. It is an attitude towards life where you continually live, learn and ameliorate. Fly fishing is a combination of chess, art, hunting and golf.» - Jan Eckmann.

 

Jan was born in Switzerland where his passion for fishing started in his early childhood. You won’t find Jan in a fancy fly-fishing lodge. But maybe on a remote back-country river in New Zealand, Russia or Patagonia sight-fishing for brown trout in remote crystal-clear headwaters. During his fly-fishing adventures around the world Jan fell in love with the beautiful rivers of New Zealand almost a decade ago and he has returned to New Zealand’s back-country for months every year. With his fly rod in one hand, a survival kit in the other and a rucksack on his back he is willing to take the risk of the unknown and has walked the length of New Zealand and has spent weeks in the wilderness. Jan is a certified FFI Instructor and if he is not fly-fishing he is either in the boxing ring, skydiving or working as a partner of a Multy Family Office Business in Bern, Switzerland.

Javier Pena (ES)

I was born in Madrid, capital city of Spain in 1976, where I currently reside. I started fishing and fly tying my own flies at age of 14, something that really soon became more than just a hobby but a great passion and a way of living. I consider myself a restless fisherman, always in constant evolution and looking for new challenges, this has got me chasing all type of species and to dominate all types of techniques with the rod, being dry fly fishing, tandem and euronymph, the one I use the most. Although, I recognize that one of my biggest weaknesses is sight-fishing, this is something that makes me do great follies. At the moment I colaborate with one of the most important fly fishing stores in Spain, where I teach fly tying courses, fishing techniques, guided fishing and adviser in everything related to fly fishing of salmonids and cyprinids. You can see even more on my facebook page “Javier Peña” or instagram @javitralla.

Miren Elosegui (ES)

I was born in 1984 in the Basque Country, a little region situated in the north of Spain. Five years ago, I began to love the fly fishing taking it as a game on the grass through the fly casting. From the beginning, I got completely hypnotized by the loops in the air. I am mainly a brown trout angler. Spain is a country with a temperate weather which allows me to practice dry fly fishing during all the season, combining different altitudes and latitudes in search of the desired hatches. Fly fishing matches all my greatest passions: outdoor activities, adventure and being in touch with nature. I consider myself a fanatic of dry fly fishing using ultralight equipments, always looking for wild trouts in well preserved river sections and a strong supporter of the “catch and release” philosophy.
