It started as for many kids with, angling for roach with a simple pole and a float during the summer in the lake where we lived. When I was about fifteen we got our first real fishing boat and started to focus on pike and perch fishing. The method of choice were trolling with crank baits in the fall. I think this is the time when pike fishing really stuck to me, and to this day it´s my favourite species to target. During the summertime we did a lot of perch fishing as well as angling for rainbow trout and trolling for salmon on the big lakes in Sweden. In later years the biggest drive for me, has been competitive fishing for pike in tournaments around Sweden.
