Worlds Experience: 

My name is Benjamin, but people call me Benja. I am 38 years old and I live in Roskilde, 30 kilometres from Copenhagen. Fishing has been a part of my life since I was a little boy. Back then, it was fishing for roach in small lakes.

That is far from how I do it today. Sometimes I do bring my nephew for some good times by the lake. I spend most of my spare time on the water fishing from my Hobie kayak.
I started out in an Outback but I had a need to be able to stand up and cast so I upgraded it to the Pro Angler 12. Never been happier!

My focus is on the pike and it is both cast and retrieve and trolling with 2-4 rods, as we do a lot in northern Europe. To me pike fishing is always catch and release! Several times a year I go with a group of other kayakers to fish and camp in the wild. It is really great fun to end a day of fishing with a camp fire and a cold beer. We share techniques, kayak rig ups and funny stories, and after a good night sleep we get up with the sun and on the water.

Pike is not the only fish I fish for, I like to hunt trout, cod, perch, zander and many other species too. I like how to specify the technique that triggers a fish to bite. That is the fun of it – that is what I love!
