Hi, I’m Erik. I’m 34 years young and live in Sweden. Chub fishing is my big addiction, but I also target other species, such as pike, rudd, and eel. I make my own home-made fishing tackle, as I enjoy the creative and productive process a lot. My go-to venue for big Chub here in Scandinavia is the world-famous River Em.

Hi, I’m Johnny. I’ve been fishing for Irish river pike for 22 years on and off. My favorite method is a floated ledger but recently a suspended bait under the float is my go-to setup.
