Bernd Wiesbauer

Fishing since he was a child, fly fishing has been just another kind of fishing method, but from the age of 25fly fishing became the main and ultimately, the only way to fish. Born 1962 in the southern Part of Austria, near the border to Slovenia, his point of interest is the native brown trout. Bernd´s favorite type of fishing is the dry fly fishery on the gin clear, preferably, small streams in Austria and Slovenia. But, to teach and develop casting is even more important for him as the fishery itself. So he gave workshops and schools in Europe and the US. Especially the work with children and beginners is more a vocation than an effort to him. Till today, Bernd is the first and only I.F.F.F master in Austria, a level 2 examiner, and since 2014 a member of the I.F.F.F. international Committee. Web:
