Avid Team Europe Expansion


New Anglers Join Our Fast Growing Brand

Following a record breaking year Avid is delighted to announce that our team is getting stronger and stronger with the addition of some fantastic new anglers to our team.

As our continued growth into Europe reaches pace, check out this talented bunch!

In France, we are happy to have Damien David on board, a prolific catcher of big carp from a wide variety of venues.


In Belgium, two top anglers join our ranks, the brilliant Kevin Vandevenne and rising star, Kristof Eyckens. Both guys have a huge amount of talent and will help our ongoing promotional effort in the Benelux.


Also in the Benelux, in Holland, we welcome carp aces Gerben Lievers and Roel Den Boer, two great guys who have loads to offer.


In Italy, Marco Balzola joins the team. Marco fishes mainly public waters in Italy and Slovenia, catching massive carp at an alarming rate every year.


And finally, in Germany, we welcome our long-time friend Felix Schollmeyer. He's fished all over Germany and is a prolific writer – a better team member would be hard to imagine.


Brand Manager Mat Woods says: "Most of these guys have been involved with our brand for a while, either on the outskirts or as 'friends' of the brand. With so much multimedia activity planned in Europe this season, it made sense to make their involvement official and continue our rapid growth in more territories. It's an exciting time for the brand, following a massive and successful 2016."
