My first years in the Jackson Kayak Team were in freestyle. During the 2009 world championships in Thun, Switzerland, I quickly fell in love with the Star design and have competed with my JK SuperStar ever since.
In 2011 I fulfilled my life-long dream of fishing from a kayak and started selling Jackson Kayak fishing line through my project www.kayakfishing.cz. Since then I fell in love with every single model JK has released and sold many JK kayaks.

In 2012 I became the official JK ambassador for fishing in Europe. I am continuously working on promotion of JK fishing across Europe. My main goal is to create a team of enthusiasts that would bring Jackson fishing kayaks to every country in Europe. I also want to work closely with JK dealers and help them with their business.

I love fishing for pike, especially when they hang out in shallow areas, like in the delta of the Vltava river in Lipno reservoir. One of my favorite spots is also the Slapy dam near Prague. Here I target perch, especially in late fall / early winter, when the perch start to form shoals and some over 20 inch fish can be caught.

In winter you can find me in the French Alps, where I work for a Czech travel agency... Skiing every day, climbing, charging lines through untouched steep powder...that’s my life when fishing is down during the winter

I am very proud to be a member of JK team. I know that JK kayaks are the best out there and so do my customers and friends. Now I cannot imagine fishing without the Cuda or Big Tuna under me...
