Alex was raised on a diet of fly fishing and I am pretty sure that Charles Jardine only gave him fly reels to play with instead of toys! Alex has fished for the England Youth Team, representing them at World Championship level over a 4 year period winning a team Bronze and a highest individual finish of 7th in the world. He has travelled extensively, looking after groups of people and guiding them as well as giving numerous casting demonstrations alongside his father. Alex ties flies for the Partridge pro team, is a qualified casting instructor and works for international fishing specialists Aardvark McLeod.

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: www.wiesbauer-fliegenfischen.com
