Ton van Plateringen was born with a fishing rod in his hand and a healthy urge to experiment. When it comes to fishing for predators, there isn’t much Ton doesn’t know. Yet he’s never satisfied, and is constantly busy honing his skills and trying out new techniques. This passion resulted in some inventions - like the Bobo, a streamer that is fished with a baitcasting outfit - which earned him praise from colleague fishermen.
Although Ton is at home on all types of water, he prefers to fish the big rivers, where he successfully pursues trophy-sized pike, zander, perch and asp. It goes without saying that Ton isn’t restricted by a limited amount of techniques, which in most cases delivers the desired result. As a client you can rely on Ton’s ability and drive to find and land fish in any situation.
