"Since 1998, Michael has participated in international shows and conducted single- and double-hand casting workshops around the globe. As a professional fly-fisher, he guides throughout Europe from Italy to Norway and, in early 2012, began guiding in the United States. In search of new challenges, he continuously hones his own skills while - at the same time - coming up with new ideas to develop and improve equipment".
