Simon started fishing at the age of 10, when his neighbor took him to the water for the first time. At the age of 14 he started to fishing mainly for carps. With 15 he persuaded his parents to drive him to the Netherlands and Austria for fishing. When he became 18 he spent all his holidays with road trips through France.
In the next years he was fishing 3-10 times a year at French waters far away from the well-known lakes. Today he’s married and has a son, living in a big wood house in a small little village. But still these days he’s going for weekly night session and travels for one or two longer sessions to France.
