Hielke is based in Zutphen in the middle part of the Netherlands, a very quiet and peaceful region with mainly agriculture, villages, small cities and no highways. Add to that several blue spots on the map and one can understand why he likes it there so much.

A real weekend angler, Hielke tries to get out every weekend at least for one night. Venue-wise he has a weak spot for the Dutch gravel pits but also likes the challenge of some of the highly pressured, local circuit venues as well.

Putting in the extra effort into exploring and pre baiting swims is a large part of Hielke’s angling – a consistent and passionate angler, committed to his goals in angling; once he targets a venue or specific carp, he is unlikely let go until the job is done.
