FishingKris – Kristian Ole Rørbye

For me, fishing is not just a hobby, or even just a way to catch some fresh, healthy food to put on the table. When you grow up in Denmark in a small seaport town, fishing is a lifestyle, and there really isn’t much of a way for me to quit at this point, so I thought I’d share my skills and knowledge with you!

I was born and raised in Denmark, in a small, sleepy town where the only thing to do for fun or work was cast out a line, pull out a net, and reel in tons and tons of fish. Denmark offers a variety of unique fishing experiences being a harsh climate in the winters, but in Denmark, fishing is a year-round thing. When you’ve fished for seatrouts from the age of 8, you learn how to handle a rod and reel a little bit better than the average angler, and it shows in my stocked freezer.

Fishing is more than just the catch for me, as the water and its creatures pulls me in too. So much so that I studied marine biology at the University of Denmark to learn more about these underwater ecosystems, how they work, and where the best places where to find them.

That search led me to Thailand in 2009, where I’ve lived ever since. Although the culture is different, the connection to fishing is still the same here. I now travel around the world too, searching for the next best fishing spots in the world. Just when I think that I’ve found one, a new one emerges.

This site is dedicated to sharing my personal tips and tricks for fishing, water sports, and just the marine environment in general. I hope I inspire you to cast a line or get out on the water.
