Otava River, Šumava National Park, Czechia, Europe
Fly Guiding | Lodging
Let me introduce to you a place in the heart of Europe which soon became loved by many fishermen from all over the world. The Czech Republic, and especially its Šumava region, is not only a paradise for fly fishing lovers but above all a place with beautiful nature that will embrace you and never let you forget it. The Šumava National Park crossed by the Otava river, offers unforgettable atmosphere, which is one of the reasons why our clients like to return here. The articulation of the river and its variability brings many fishing adventures and provides what we fishermen like most – a possibility to restore peace of mind, merge with the nature and find oneself. This is one of the origins of the idea to build Hotel Annin close to the river and give you all you look for here. In cooperation with my brother David we will prepare a programme tailored to your dreams and show you the best places on our rivers.

Fly Tying & Fly Casting
FFI Certified Casting Instructor
I began fly fishing at the age of twelve and started fly tying shortly thereafter. However, my interest in fly tying peaked during my college years when I took several courses in aquatic entomology and as a result began tying my own patterns to better imitate the nymphs found in my local streams. I began fly fishing for trout and bass locally, then expanded to steelhead in the Lake Erie tributaries. About ten years ago, I travelled with a group of friends to Cape Cod, MA to fish for striped bass and blue fish and this sparked a continued interest in fishing forsaltwater species.
In my home waters of Northwestern Pennsylvania I pursue trout, large and smallmouth bass, steelhead, northern pike, muskellunge and panfish. I also travel to the East coast to fish in saltwater for Striped Bass and Bluefish and In the fall of 2016 I travelled to Belize to fish for Tarpon, Snook, Permit, and Bonefish.
I have been a member of the International Federation of Fly Fishers since 2002 and I am on their list of demo tiers. In the past I have tied at the Northern Ohio Fly Fishing Expo sponsored by the North Coast Fly Fishers and also the last five years at Lefty's Tie Fest at Kent Island, MD. I have also tied the last three years for the Chesapeake Council of the FFI at their booth at the Lancaster Fly Fishing Show.
I am currently a Fly Fishing Skills Instructor for the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. I am also an FFI Certified Casting Instructor. I offer both fly tying and fly casting instructions to interested individuals.

Realistic Fly Tying
My fly fishing and fly tying started in 1990. My passion in fly tying goes out to the realistic flies, including fishable and art flies. With more flies then I could ever fish with, I needed a new challenge in fly tying. I tried a few things like the classic salmon flies but could not get the satisfaction. Until I came up with the realistic fly tying, that was totally my thing, spending many hours on a single fly. It is to me a big kick to recreate a bug as good as possible. For some flies, I've spent more then 40 hours of tying, but when the end result is finished it gives me a great satisfaction.
I spend many hours behind the vise, tying is sometimes even more important to me then fishing. Every day I am behind the vise, trying new stuff and trying to improve my skills.
