My name is Jurgen Vandenstorme and I work as an independent baker. As a youngster I started fishing for roach and then switching to bigger coarse species such as bream. Several years later I became interested in carp fishing, which soon became very addictive. My favourite fishing venues are rivers and canals, which I have a huge love for. As an angler I try to keep everything simple, strong and basic. I have found this approach to be very successful in recent years and it is an approach that has accounted for some very big fish.

Using quality tackle makes a huge difference to my fishing and for me it is safe to say Gardner Tackle are one of the pioneers in the world of carp fishing. The company still continues to bring out quality and innovative products and that is why I am very proud and honoured to be part of the Benelux team.
