Thom Prüst

Thom Prüst is a guide who loves to fish Hollands Diep and the Biesbosch in search of Pike Zander and Perch. He’s a relaxed guy who is most passionate about zander fishing, but really knows how to target the 3 main predatory species. We have been on the boat with him two times, fishing both Hollands Diep and Biesbosch. We would suggest to give it a chance because it truly is a great experience being out on one of these waters! 

Thom is part of UFX - Ultimate Fishing Xperience which is a group of guides who love to share their knowledge and passion. 

It doesn’t matter if you are new to fishing, a passionate angler or if you just want to have a good day on the water and catch some fish. The guys from UFX will get you sorted! Check their website here for more information.
