HURCH PRO TEAM
Martin has been fishing with the fly since he was 10 years old. He loves all techniques of fly fishing, especially saltwater fishing. His favorite fish species are: steelheads, bonefish, yellowtail, kingfish and our local fish, such as brown trout and grayling.
For Jan, fly fishing and fly tying is a passion and attitude to life at the same time. He spends almost every free second at the water or at the binding dock and thus has an extremely large know-how. In addition to all freshwater fish, saltwater fish are among his favorite fish.
