I think about flyfishing 24/7. While life happens I think about casts, presentations and flies. When I fish, I stop thinking and everything falls into place. I’m calm and happy then.

I teach fly fishing and fly casting mostly in and around Vienna, but I’m open to everything. Timewise I’m completely flexible too.

I pursue efficiency, perfection and elegance in fly casting. Every day. But a good cast alone won’t catch you a fish. I’ll show you how to spot and stalk a fish with the right cast, presentation and fly. But most important of all, we’ll have a great time on the water.

Do you have to be a good caster to catch a fish? No – every bad caster can reassure you that. Except maybe for the one that’s wary, on the far bank, under the bushes. The fish of a lifetime shouldn’t happen by chance.
