Sharing the passion for angling, that is the life goal of this enthusiastic Amsterdam fishing guide. As a 6 year old he got his first rod, as a teenager he competed in the World Championships Coarse Fishing and ever since his early twenties he has been working professionally in sport fishing.

AuthorJuul Steyn

From the late ‘90’s onward Juul worked as an editor and chief editor at the two leading Dutch angling magazines. In 2010 he started his own business and became a certified fishing guide in Amsterdam. In 2020 Juul published his first book, called ‘Denken als een vis’, in English ‘To think like a fish’. And that is exactly what he does: make you catch more and bigger fish by teaching you to think like a fish.

The reason that he moved to Amsterdam back in 2007 is the superb stocks of predator fish both in the inner city and the waters surrounding it. Juul lives on a houseboat with his fishing boat docked alongside. It’s safe to say that he’s got fishing on his mind 24/7.
