Number of Years Fishing: 25+ UK P.B : N/A Foreign P.B: KGB, Gardner, Ehmanns Other Sponsors: 30.4 Kg Mirror 30Kg Common Favourite Venue : Rainbow

Most memorable capture: Catching at that time the biggest common of Belgium Skup at 29 kg, was at that time the biggest common in the Benelux.


Funniest moment on the bank: When I am out on the bank, I always have so much fun.....but my down moment on the bank I will never forget......one day during a night session I found a dead body in my lines.....that was hard.....to deal with.


The last couple of years I became more and more I short overnighter angler, due to my work and family, I am after all a father of two young doughters who also need care and attention.... But I must say that never the less, I don't fish to fish, what I mean is the simple fact that I always prepare my spots (finding spots, pre baiting etc). Every year I do also a couple of long sessions, I must admit that I am one of the happy few who can fish Rainbow lake on a regular base. Last year I also had my membership on a syndicate lake in Germany, so I am more than happy with my fishing these days.
