Stephane Pottelet


Stephane is currently ranked as the World's number 2 angler in the FIPS Float only World Championships ranking. This is the second year running. Currently a key member of Team France and at the very top of his game. Renowned for his skills at catching small fish like roach, bleak and skimmers at incredible speeds, however, he is adept at every style of fishing. He loves catching 'Poisson Chats' (French Catfish) on pole and waggler, but is a formidable angler on the Bolo or flat float. He is an automatic selection for every French National team even in the strongest line-ups.

Stephane is also the Product Manager for Garbolino and has added tremendous strength to an already strong team. His influences in product development and attention to detail are already showing in the new ranges coming through.
