I am 37 years and I was born in a small village in the Eifel Mountains. Trier is the nearest major city and also the oldest in Germany.
In 2011 I made my passion my job, and moved to Stuttgart, where I now work in a Fly Fishing Store as a Fly tyer, Teacher and Online Store Manager.
At the age of 14, I passed the required exam for anglers in Germany and started my fly fishing passion. A local fly fisherman became my friend and mentor, I learned casting from him and a short time later I begin to start Fly Tying.
Over twenty years have now passed and fly tying still has a firm hold on me. I tie at meetings and trade shows around Germany and regularly organize fly tying classes for beginners, as well as advanced tyers.
My favourite flies are small tiny Drys, Nymphs and Emergers. I have used Partridge hooks since the 1990’s when I began tying.
In 2012 I joined the Partridge Pro-Team , a dream come true.
