Jon Hansson

When Jon was 13 years old, his father put a fly rod in his hands and said, “This is what life is all about.” And after that life continued to be focused on fly-fishing in almost everything Jon did. Since the age of 21 Jon has worked with fly-fishing in different fishing shops, as both a guide and instructor. He is currently a co-owner of a fly fishing shop located in Gothenburg called Between Castz. From the moment he caught his first Brown Trout on a fly, Trout has been his passion in both freshwater and saltwater. Now fishing for big Pike in the Swedish archipelago and Slovenian Rainbow Trout are always a priority.
