Dear fans of sport fishing, 

I would like to offer you a fly-fishing course lead by me personally, in which I will try to pass my vast knowledge and years of experience in-fly fishing on you. I have been interested in fly-fishing since I was thirteen. Professionally, I have worked in fly-fishing since 1990 and my company also manufactures and exports fly-fishing products. 
I was a member of the Czech national fly-fishing team at the World Championships in Great Britain in 1990 where we won a gold medal in the team competition. I also attended the World Championships in Italy (1992) and Canada (1993). In the years 1995-2002 I was a guest at the International Fly Tying Events Symposium and Fly Fishing Conclave (USA), as fly tier of Czech flies. I take part also in similar events in Europe (Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Portugal). 
I organize courses of Czech Nymph fishing for my Czech and foreign clients for many years and I work as a fly-fishing guide in the Šumava too. I prefer fly-fishing in the Šumava rivers Otava, Kremelná, Vltava or Volynka. I also enjoy fly-fishing in Scandinavia, Slovenia and Poland. Trout, grayling and salmon are my favourite species to catch. I prefer catching on the dry fly, nymphs and streamers.
