THIS IS THE GUIDE PAGES

KRISTOFFER GAARDE

Kristoffer has grown up fishing on the Reisa river and has caught many good salmon but what separates him from the many other good local fisherman is his passion for helping others. Kristoffer is a fantastic caster and is always happy to try and pass on his knowledge, it is his casting and increased guiding prowess that has earned him a place on the Fly fish Europe guiding scheme further increasing his confidence and desire to do a good job. He has a fantastic grasp of the English language and a great sense of humour so a day on the river with him will be one of laughs and learning and of cause hopefully the fish of a lifetime.

He guided full tours on his own, in recent years he has joined the Reisastua lodge family and enjoys the challenges of guiding foreign anglers in the river. Between guiding work he also found time to land over 30 salmon including some of the giant fish that the Riesa is famed for.
