I started fishing with the age of 5 years old. At that time I fished for roaches, bream and whatever else bit. My father and brother have been also anglers. When I got older, I also chased pike and carp on small lakes and rivers. Slowly but surely, I specialized myself in spinning for the local predators. About 7 years ago I started catfishing in Germany which became a great passion for me. There is nothing more fascinating for me than catching the largest freshwater fish in Europe. I am not only admiring the size and weight they can achieve, but also by the primeval appearance and mysticism that surrounds it.
