Developer & flytyer

I have worked for 15 years as a web developer in Oslo, working on Learning Management System, APIs, identity, leading department and teams, b2b and crunching data in the datalab.

Flytying is my passion.


Experience

As a developer I have worked through all layers: from backend development to leading large (and small) teams. Thrive in backend logic and making sense of data.

I believe in using the right tools and not rely on the (currently) highest rated language or application. A pragmatic developer working in a realistic world.

Sites

I develop and run several sites dedicated to flytying & flyfishing, all are written and developed by myself

https://flyhooks.org
A index over past and present flytying hooks: with a search and pictures of hooks against the same background it makes it easier to see differences and similarities between hooks from different producers.

http://flypattern.org
A site dedicated to preserving historic fly patterns from early flytying books

https://flyfisher.org
My personal flyfishing/flytying blog with updates related to the sites I run and new patterns I have tied up.

http://coffeeandflytying.com
A aggregated list of the latest blog posts from many flytying/fishing related sites.


Flytying & fishing

My passion is flyting and fishing: I run several sites dedicated to the topic and spending time on the vise is meditation in the developer-centric world I have at work.

There is no style I don't tie, a pragmatic flytyer with a keen interest in the historic values: the patterns, history and craftmanship.

We need to maintain the tradition in order to keep it alive and be able to move forward
