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. Date as agreed.
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, Křemelná, 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.
In my fly-fishing course you will learn casting with a fly-fishing rod and fly line using modern fly-fishing equipment. You will practice fly-fishing for trout and graylings via various methods and will tie your first artificial fly. You will see how to gently handle the caught fish. For advanced participants we can focus the course on popular Czech or French nymphing. Our motto is "Catch and Release", so we prefer the hooks without a barb.
All the necessary equipment for beginners is provided (wading pants, rod, line, flies, leaders). In case of bad water conditions in the Otava River - the practical fishing will be placed to another river or still water.
Courses take place from mid- April to late November, the term must be booked in advance.
Participants can buy fly fishing equipment, flies, binding materials and other products during the course for a discounted price.
The course takes place at the Otava River in the National park Šumava - West Bohemia. Accommodation is provided in nice Hotel Gabreta in Susice.
