Erik Granlund – Fishing DIY Expert

A happy coarse fisherman holding a huge chub that he has caught on bread on a river.

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.
