Colleague fishermen have affectionately nicknamed Hans Wowijs ‘gold nugget’, on account of the many big fish he has landed. These catches, however, are much more than pure luck. Hans has a way to enforce luck using years of international experience and expertise. Besides, Hans loves to try out new stuff. He and Henk Rusman were at the cradle of jerkbait-fishing in The Netherlands. If northern pike is the species you are after, Hans is the guy to hire.
Besides artificial lures Hans loves to fish with natural baits from a boat and from the shore. He’ll be happy to show you the tricks of the trade during a guided session. Hans has another passion: fishing for carp. Practically all well-known big fish in The Netherlands have at one time visited his landing net. Hans will gladly share his wide knowledge on carp fishing with his clients. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better carp guide.
