Why pukka?


pukka [ pa-ka, Anglo-Indian ] : authentic, real, properly done


After having done coarse and carp fishing as well as some spinning I am fishing fly-only for more than ten years. I am fascinated by the variety of flyfishing. The casting, always new situations on the water and also the flyfishermen who seem to be driven by the same passion – flyfishing obviously is more than only catching fish.

A new part of this passion came into my life with a salmon fishing trip to Norway – flyfishing in foreign countries and their waters. I have been fishing with friends in unchartered rivers and lakes which aren’t overcrowded ever since. They make the flyfisher’s heart pounding with wild fish, pristine landscapes and interesting countries.

Besides, many countries gave us possibilities to get an insight into their cultures, which made these trips unforgettable. We weren’t only fascinated by the fishing, but by the whole package composed of nature, wildlife, the fishing of course and last but not least the personalities who introduced our country to us.

From 2011 on I offer individuals and small groups to make similar experiences. I have fished each of the pukka destinations by myself in order to be able to give to detailed advices. Your holiday time is precious and you should get the most out of it. The offer of pukka destinations will be extended step-by-step by carefully chosen destinations. Be invited to visit us regularly.My partners and myself plan the trip together with you and create it from several travel components.
