ABOUT ME

titulka

I have been thinking about a website for relatively long time as I have a lot of friends abroad and I sometimes catch a nice fish or make an interesting  picture and I would like to share it with others. In Facebook there is not enough place for stories. I also organise fly-fishing events and the last impulse to create this web was that Karel Křivanec asked me to take over the organisation of the fly-fishing courses. So I decided to prepare my own website focused on my fly-fishing activities including the courses and I will try to keep my resolution to put there regularly fresh posts.

Some personal info

I graduated at Charles University in Prague at Faculty of Nature Science at the Department of Hydro-biology and Ecology. I continued my studies at University of South Bohemia where I defended PhD. thesis aimed on the migration of fish between Římov reservoir and inflow river. Next I worked at Vltava River Authority in the Department of water management planning and since 2009 I have been working in a private company VRV.a.s.  as the expert on hydro-biology, fish ecology and nature protection. I worked part time as the fisheries manager in South Bohemia Board of the Czech Angling Union in years 2001 – 2017. I live in České Budějovice, capital of the South Bohemia.

I started fishing as a coarse fisherman in age of about 10 and I spent my childhood at Lipno lake and Vltava river in Český Krumlov. One of my teachers from the University introduced me to Milan Janus and it was start of my fly-fishing carrier. I also started competing, I participated as judge or organiser at all fly-fishing championships which have took part in the Czech Republic. I help with organisation of fly-fishing competitions mainly in South Bohemia and also with organisation of fly-fishing courses. I cooperated with Karel on his famous book “Czech Nymph and Other Related Flyfishing Methods”, I made majority of pictures.
As the active fly-fishing competitor I fish in Hanák team and I focus more on local competitions. Although I prefer fishing in rivers during my leasuretime, my personal best results were 2nd place in the Czech Lake Fly-fishing Championship 2010 and I also achieved few placements on the stage at lake boat competitions in England, the best was 2nd place in Lexus Championship heat held in Stocks and victory in Pitsford heat.  In subsequent years 2014, 2015 and 2016, I won three-times May Cup in Květoňov lake and I was third in the Svatováclavský cup Hanák open in  the same lake in 2014. In 2016, I was second in Kežmarská Zlatná cup in Slovakia in April and I was third in Knapek Hooks Open in Ostrava in October.

In rivers, I gained bronze medal in Hanák Open 2009 as well as in Rožmberský cup 2013 which are two most evaluated competitions in South Bohemia and regularly host top Czech competitors, in 2016 we were 5 th in Hanák Open with my friends Jiří and Míla.

I have organised as the “International organiser” two big FIPS MOUCHE  fly-fishing events, the 17th European Fly-fishing Championship 2011 and 34th World Fly-fishing Championship 2014. We are already preparing EURO 2018.

Nowadays I a little reduce competitions as I have small children and I would like to spend more time with them and moreover I  found, that I have no time for fishing in my favourite home waters due to competitions somewhere in the opposite part of our country.
