Markus has been angling since he was a child and this passion has fascinated him ever since. Markus started in the late 80’s spinning for trout and pike and later developed into a very good fisherman with the waggler. By the age of 13 his affection for the “English” style of fishing was evident.
Come the early 90’s Markus had engrossed himself with every kind of fishing literature. He also came to read an article about the ultimate bait said to catch huge carp…the boilie! In 1991 Markus put his first self-made boilie onto the hair and that was the start of his fishing career. Since then he has been catching countless carp, many of them of large weights.
