Rocco Udewenz was born in 1974 and grew up in Cottbus, Germany. He now lives in Döbern and works in the tackle shop “VF-Angelsport”. Little did his parents know when he was born, that one day Rocco would become a passionate fisherman. Fascinated by fishing from an early age he quickly gained extensive experience in freshwater and saltwater fishing and as a result soon turned, his hobby into a profession. His desire to work in the fishing industry certainly worked as he has been doing it for over 20 years!
The fishing industry certainly takes up much of his time, yet he has a second passion, travelling and if he can mix this with some fishing then all the better! So don’t be surprised if one day you find Rocco on a big game boat in Florida, New Zealand, India, Spain, Iran, in fact what country isn’t on this dedicated anglers bucket list? Holland and the Bodden waters are favourites of his and when on the move you will often find him having a quick opportunist cast with his spinning rod in hope that any predatory fish will grab the lure.
Now you can understand why Rocco says: “Fishing is my life!”
