As long as he can remember, Tjeerd van der Ploeg has fished for pike, perch, zander and asp. He is a predatory fish addict who in recent years has been specialising in fishing for zander, but loves to fish for pike and perch too!
In his search for zander, Tjeerd roams the country. He participates in the Dutch zander fishing championship and several other tournaments, where he has established himself as a top ten contender.
Because of his consistency and results Tjeerd has been asked to develop rods and fishing accessories for Zebco and Quantum.
