WHO WE ARE.
"Since I was a boy growing up in Germany, I was interested in the outdoors and sports, and I could be found in the little creek behind the house chasing sculpins and turning over rocks to look for insects, or somewhere in the woods riding my mountainbike. After getting my first fishing rod, an orange 7 foot fiberglass Shakespeare, I was hooked. After a few years of conventional fishing, I met an old fisherman with a strange fishing rod and was introduced to flyfishing and shortly after to flytying. And I rarely fished anything else since then. After spending a few years working in a fly shop, I'm ready to pass on my passion for flyfishing and the outdoors."
"I grew up fishing on the east coast of the U.S., and picked up flyfishing when I moved to Los Angeles at age 19. I worked long hours in the film business, and the closest good trout water was the Owens River in Bishop, 5 hours away, so I spent a good deal of time flyfishing the surf for halibut, surf perch, and leopard sharks in between trout trips. In 2005, my wife and I moved to Switzerland. The daunting regulations and the demands of family life made fishing difficult at first, but after a few years I met the right people, and I started to be able to appreciate the unique and vibrant fishery we have here in Switzerland. In the meantime, I've become the first and only native English speaking SaNa Instructor in Switzerland and I completed Orvis Guide School in Yellowstone Park, Montana, and my main goal is to make sure that no one who loves fly fishing is prevented from doing so because they feel intimidated by the amount of rules or the language barrier."
WHAT WE DO.
WHY WE DO IT.
We do it because we love it, plain and simple. We want to promote responsible and sustainable fly fishing in some of the beautiful places on earth, and do our part to ensure flyfishing has a healthy and active future in Switzerland.
