Tom started fishing on a very young age since he was given his first bamboo rod from his father.
Since then he started to fish frequently and very soon he was participating in fishing tournaments mainly match fishing but it was there that a true addiction with the sport happened.
Nowadays Tom is fishing for many years passionate only for predator and his first love was catching zander, Tom was fishing mainly for zander from the bank as this species is most to find around his place in the shape of many big canals in Belgium. When Tom started travelling to Netherlands, his passion suddenly changed to an obsession. He quickly fell in love with the big Dutch rivers. The dynamic of this big rivers are demanding the best of an angler and these rivers are never the same due water levels that change all the time.
The biggest challenge is to fish these huge waters from the bank or with waders - definitely not the most easy thing to do. By fishing the rivers this way, Tom caught an enormous zander meassuring 101 cm.
Since then, Tom has now started to target perch frequently, where he is now triyng to beat his current personal best on perch which is 53 cm. He just loves all the different techniques and the character from this mighty perch. It might not be a surprise that he also caught huge pike during his adventures from the bank.
Tom is a great all-round predator angler to have on the team, and we are extremely happy to have him on board.
