René Gerken

Originally, I am educated as an Agricultural Technologist in nature and environment, and subsequently educated as a professional guide in Sweden at the Swedish Sport Fishing Academy. I am one of three in Denmark who is a Certified Master casting instructor in single-handed (MCI) and two-handed (THMCI) fly casting, in Fly Fishers International (FFI). In addition, I have been a casting instructor for the renowned Swedish company Loop Tackle for 10 years. I hold many casting courses and demonstrations private, for angling clubs, at fly fishing fairs, for shops, in Denmark and abroad. For the last 12 years I have been guiding around the world, so guiding anglers is a big part of my life.
After fishing and guiding on the Funen coast for many years, I have the experience you need to have a good day. I’m always up to date on what’s going on around the coast, as well as which flies are good right now.
On a daily basis I am Camp Manager in northern Norway at Olderø fly fishing Lodge for Heggøy Aktiv. 2021 will be my seventh season in Lakselv.
