My passion lies in going fishing around the mountain close to my home and doing cycling whenever I am not fishing. Like many other dads, my dad is also the one who poisoned me with the passion for fishing. Close to my home runs a river. The river was perfect for afternoon trips and I used to go there with worms in my hand and catch carp. After the first experiences, the predators started to catch my interest and I was soon fishing for trout, perch and black bass, which is also my passion today.


After many years of fishing, my true passion comes down to two fish. Trout and Perch. I am very fortunate to be living next to one of the most prime reservoirs in Europe – The grand Perchzilla lake. This is where I spend most of my time catching giant perch.
