For sea anglers in Scandinavia, Jimmy Andersson needs no introduction… But here’s one just for the good cause. He’s an owner of a successful sea fishing travel company - Nordic Sea Angling and has been working closely with us for many years. He has been fishing since childhood and tried out the most. When he was in his twenties, sea fishing completely took over his life, so he began to fish in Norway early on. He was immediately captivated by fishing and the incredible nature. He loves to search for and test new fishing locations, big waves, ice-cold waters and insanely big fish is a piece of cake and just a regular day for him.
In 2004 he started his travel company Nordic Sea Angling with great success, (which today has four destinations and 34 boats located around the North part of Norway). He has a long list of merits with insanely big “back-killing” fish. A cod of a staggering 33,65 kilos, and a couple of halibuts of over 50 kilos – just to mention a few. Last years, he got more and more hooked on the popper- and speed jigging fishing, and he has recently started up a new destination in Panama.
As you can see, it’s all about sea-fishing, and we are proud and happy to have him in the Westin team. We can also reveal that he is the inspiration behind the name of our successful sea jig – “Slim Jim”.
