I am one of the lucky ones who made her hobby into her work. As co-owner of Carp Tackle Shop , my hobby, lake owner, etc. I have my hands full with everything related to carp fishing.
For me, fishing is much more than a hobby. At a very young age I was already on the waterfront with my parents, catching some roach and perch and enjoying the outdoors. Later this changed and we often went out with some fishing friends. A day fishing at the campsite or just staying on the banks of the canal, we always had the greatest fun. At the age of 17, the first rods were bought to go after the carp and that’s how the trend was set. A hobby became a passion, an obsession an eventually my work. After going through all species, the urge to catch bigger and bigger and chasing that one target, the fun and friendships on the bank remain by far the most important. We still have the greatest fun and often this produces the most beautiful memories and stories. The fishing is in my blood and it will never be different.
