Operator since 2018
Since I was 3 years old I went fishing to the river Danube with my granddad. Started as an allround angler I'm a pure spin fisherman now since years who is also fishing other countries and continents in both saltwater and freshwater. I'm also Rapala/VMC/Okuma prostaff since 2018. In 2021 I started to manage my own fishing waters, where the fishing pressure is low and the fish population only grows with natural reproductions without any regular stocking program. Now it's time to offer you my waters combined with my experience in spinning. Join me and I'll guide you to pike, trout, zander and more.
