CHRISTIAN THOMSEN

Years of fishing?
I started fishing at the age of 6 years, my Dad showed me the secrets of spin-fishing in fresh and saltwater. My first contact to flyfishing was at the age of 30, now I‘m 35 years old and with every single cast I‘m getting more and more addicted to it!

My passion?
Flyfishing! That means to me, being outdoors in the nature, by the river, with friends that share my feelings and leaving all that daily shit at home.

Can you tell us a little about your home waters and the fish you pursue there?
My heart beats for Bavaria! I love fishing for trouts and grayling in the Chiemgau and it‘s awesome surrounding waters.

What’s the height of the season for you? – What time of year is your personal favourite?
Every day I go fishing with my buddies! I can not say that, every time of the year is special.I love the spring with his meltwater, going wet in summer leaving the stinky waders at home, fishing with the stunning colour`s of autumn and going with small dry‘s for grayling in winter.

What are your favourite travel destinations?
At he moment it is Italy and Slovenia.

What’s on the bucket list?
It‘s a bucket without bottom.. on top for sure is Canada, Iceland, Argentina and Los Roques! One time the Bahamas or the Seychelles for sure!

What do you like most about Thomas and Thomas rods? Which rods do you fish?
From the first cast i like the T&T Avantt!

What’s your current go-to fly?
The right fly! Match the hatch!
Also i like all kind of CDC-Flies and tying them as well.
No day on the water with 1 Tacky filled with CDC patterns.
