I come from the town  Sainte Colombe in the  Rhone-District 69, the River Rhône was right at the step of my door. I first came into contact with fishing for Zander, Pike and Bass with my father at an early age, but everything changed for me in 1997 after I caught a catfish of 1.20 m length - from that day I was infected with the Catfish Virus. Back then the world of Catfish angling was very small and it did not take long for me to meet Xavier Vella. We became friends quickly as we shared the same passion. In order to develop my skills I often dived near catfish in the River Rhone and observed their behavior. For several years now I have been able to make this knowledge available to the fishing community through my articles in various magazines.
