Juan Carlos Cambronero Gonzalez
Involved in the world of fishing from a very young age, my passion was passed on to me by my brother-in-law. Having tried many disciplines, I have dedicated the last 10 years exclusively to fly fishing. Initially starting with trout and predators, I now only spend my time in the search of and fishing for large barbel.
This passion for fly fishing especially "fishing with your eyes“ led me to investigate the habits of fish and inspired me to give more importance to realistic flies. Through a long friendship with Andres Touceda, Spanish fly tier, our common belief in this principal is stronger than ever.
For me the tying of my own flies is not an obligation, it is a passion and it is part of fishing: "I could not imagine fishing with a fly which I have not made with my own hands”. One of the things that motivates me the most is making a new fly pattern and going to the river to see how it performs - and of course always the joy of the catch and release.
