Katka Švagrová

I come from a fishing family so it isn´t a surprise that I have been fly fishing from the age of 4. I grew up with a strong connection to the nature and therefore all my life have evolved around this level. My father was the person who gave me the right passion for fly fishing and things related to the nature.

Throughout my childhood I was fishing with him on the local streams, rivers and lakes in the heart of Europe - Czech Republic region. 5 years ago I started to compete in fly fishing. During that time I have been 4 times a women champion of the Czech Republic in the Fly fishing sport. But I realized that competitions aren't my main interest.... I'm more interested in travelling with my fly fishing rod around the world to explore new waters and fish species.

I visited Western Australia for saltwater fly fishing where I spent more than one month with Jono Shales, one of the most successful saltwater guide. This journey totally expanded my horizons. Since then I’ve had new experiences on waters in South Africa, where I was helping South African fly fishing girls to get a new skills. This year I became a member of the Arctic Silver innovation team and had the opportunity to visit Iceland and Norway with them. For sure I am going to plan visits much more in the near future.
