He was a member of the German international squad for over ten years. He was runner-up in the world championship and took part in several world championships and international VDSF competitions. His passion today is fishing for large trout and saltwater fishing.
Thomas Behr is Managing Director and a passionate freshwater angler. He is mainly out and about with a spinning rod. Either directly here on the Neckar or in Holland, where he regularly goes.
Michael Zeh promotes sales and has close daily contact with our specialist retail customers. He advises and also makes a significant contribution to the successful integration of new articles into the range.
Klaus is also a multiple state champion of Baden-Württemberg and has successfully participated in countless international VDSF competitions, always representing the German flag excellently. Growing up directly on the Neckar, he always caught more fish than his colleagues and other club members, even as a youngster. Klaus is one of the best German Matchangler. He is also an excellent fly fisherman.
Today, Thomas works closely with the Behr development team. He is on the water almost every day and contributes his fishing knowledge, especially when it comes to predatory fish lures, to all new developments. In addition to polefishing, he mainly fishes for carp, zander and catfish, regularly catching fish over 2.25 meters.
