|Comment||I joined the Ultimate Fishing team as field tester and competitor in August 2002. Fan of lures fishing and in particular of Megabass’ lures, I had the opportunities to participate to lots of French and European competitions.
During the French fishing shows in Nantes and Clermont-Ferrand, I met lots of people who needed information and of course focused them on Megabass lures.
I practice all the modern fishing technics and my dream would be to participate to a Japanese or an American bass competition.

|Competition history||Between 2009 and 2013, I competed in the Ultimate Fishing team (French Megabass distributor), at the French freshwater tour “Defi Predators” with my fishing partner C. Rapin. After finishing 2nd at the national final in 2009 we went on to win the South division as well as the national final in 2011! I thoroughly enjoyed participating in these events. In 2012/13, we got some results but saltwater attraction was every day stronger. So, I decided to stop freshwater competitions and devote myself to saltwater fishing only.|
|Comment||Since fishing hooked me, one brand always stayed one step ahead… You guess which one! Quality, design and colors are just amazing, thanks to Yuki ITO! I’m particularly fond of the elaborate rods and the high quality blanks. Every model is so unique, once you’ve tried and tested one, you could never go back to another brand, believe me, I am talking from experience!
Megabass is a brand which has greatly contributed to the evolution of lure fishing, and is always looking for innovation to satisfy passionate anglers all around the world.
|My first Megabass tackle choice||From my point of view, the best soft bait rod I’ve ever tried is the Destroyer Intimidarter F3-64XS 3/16-1/2oz. Its action is as fast as I like and its resonance is just perfect! You can feel the smallest bite and control the biggest sea bass with this unique rod!
One of my favorite Megabass Softbait is the Hazedong, maybe because I caught my biggest sea bass and porgies on it! I can’t go fishing without a pack, I feel that this is one of the most effective soft baits!

|Personal Web Site||I was born in Oct 3rd 1986, fishing has been an outdoor activity for entertainment to my family elders, to be imperceptibly influenced by that, it was developed to my habit. From stream-fishing to pool-fishing, I’ve turned to rock-fishing off-shore fishing when I was in senior high, then raft-fishing to Maeuch-method. Finally into lure-fishing field. Comparing to the previous mentioned, raw-lure fishing methods is a breakthrough. Except patience is needed, fisher’s techniques、intelligence and knowledge are being tested. Not only have to considerate about climate and water temperature, but to judge the location of target fish, then decide to use what kind of bait to fish. It really attracts me a lot and makes me want to explore more about it.
Meanwhile, my insistence and patience to fight fish has been cultivated since ever then.
