I am Ronald Traas from a small village called Wemeldinge in the southwest of the Netherlands.

I am a Hobie fishing addict for about 10 years now. My passion has brought me so much.

From awesome memories, to great friends from all around the world! I am very grateful to be part of the Hobie family and the chance of competing again in the greatest tournament of the world.

I’m looking forward to visit Australia for the first time and target those special Bream.

It will be challenging to compete against so many talented anglers but I am ready. Watch out Australia, here comes the Dutch destroyer 😉
