BIO

I started fly fishing from a young age with my dad. I came from a fly fishing family so It wasnt that strange that I already manage to cast with fly fishing rod at age of 4. From that time fly fishing became as the biggest passion of my life. So far Im trying to be focused on travelling worldwide and targeting new species. The last couple years a became a womens flyfishing champion in The Czech Republic 5 times, 2 times I got silver place.

SPECIAL RIGGING TECHNIQUES

When I'm using french nymphing in my hometown waters I use 3 different flies (Its allowed there). Even people saying, that Its difficult to cast and lead them, I have always success with this technique Compare to use 2 flies how is usual. I think I can easily cover all water column then and offer fish the best selection of flies from my fly box.
