My grayling 50.5 cmOriginally, I did not want to take part in this year´s Championship and the nomination for my sixth championship I gave up mainly for family reasons. But when I had a call from Roman Heimlich that he had torn cruciate ligament in his knee during his last skiing trip, I agreed with my wife Hana that if the Czech team asks me again, I will go and I did not have to wait so long.

On Sunday, 27 May, we set out in two cars in direction to Bohinjska Bystrica and our team consisted of the Captain Tomáš Starýchfojtů, Ivan Vančura, Tomáš Cieslar, Luboš Roza and me. Tony Pešek should have joined us due to his workload on Monday evening. After 6 and a half hour long journey, we arrived in the place and got accommodated. Then there was an introductory evening, where we set the plan for the following day, when we decided for the training on the Sava Bohinjka downstream from the venue II. Then our one-week practice camp before the World Championship in Slovenia started.

Rio MondegoThe team of the Czech Republic departed to the European Championship to Portugal already on 7 May with these team members: Captain Tomáš Starýchfojtů, experienced guy Jája Šram, Pavel Chyba (European Champion 2009, World Champion 2010), two newbees - Martin Černoch and Bořek Kopecký and me. I got into the team at the last moment as a substitute, because last spring I had a very serious accident on a snowmobile in the Giant Mountains and after that I spent long time lying in hospital with a broken kidney and bleeding into the abdominal cavity.

There's always a first timeI hope you all know that the 17th European Championship in fly fishing was held in Rožmberk nad Vltavou in June of this year. In the previous years, every nation could sign up two teams for the European Championship. This year was no different except with the small change that the second team had to be ladies. The Czech Republic was the only one to take advantage of this option, thus allowing the participation of our five women in such a big competition. In the relatively long history of international fly fishing competitions, this was the first time that a Czech ladies team competed.
