Worlds Experience: 

As a matter of fact Sebastian is a 100% fisherman since he is fishing his whole life. His Dad took him out fishing before he was even able to walk. In the age of 19 he started to concentrate on lure fishing for German predators. His first step on the water was with a Bellyboat which changed his fishing style at once.
After years fishing from a Bellyboat, Sebastian decides to change something and he started looking for something new, something like an upgrade. That was the time when he decided to buy a kayak.
“This was actually the best decision in my fishing life“ Sebastian says.
Sebastian´s latest and first Kayak Fishing Tournament success was winning the first edition of the World Predator Classic Kayak Open 2014 held on the Haringvliet Lake in South Holland where he qualified for the Hobie Fishing Worlds 2014.

Worlds Experience: 

In my younger days I fished in the rivers of my bavarian homeland e.g. Loisach, Partnach and Isar. Afterwards I also fished in the lakes of the foothills of the Alps on fingerling (char), trouts, whitefish and burbot. In this period of time I also started to fly fish in the Alps and fly tying.

Beginning of the 90´s I moved to England for professional reasons, where I learned fishing in the bore zone (surf fishing) and spin fishing for sea bass and sea trout. In the mid-90s I moved back to Southwest-Germany (Baden), where I was able to follow my passion again, walleye fishing. Especially fishing in the Rhine is what I prefer the most.

For nearly 20 years now I have been chasing walleye with hard and soft baits. I also like the fishing from belly boat and more recently kayak fishing has become one of my angling specialties.
