Fishing Holidays in Amsterdam

The one-stop-shop for a great fishing experience in and around Amsterdam.

At Fishing Guide Amsterdam, fishing is our passion, and love to share the experience with everyone. Retired competition winner and owner native Marine Michael Stalenhoef is offering you to catch the zander of a life time in Amsterdam, the zander capital of the world.

River Zaan

We guide on the river Zaan, t’ IJ, North Sea Canal and Lake Alkmaardermeer and specialise in zanders (European walleye) but also enjoy finding many other species like pike and perch.

You name it, we do it

Learn jigging with soft-baits, fishing with a dropshot, trolling, casting or the old fashioned way with a dead bait and a float on the river Zaan near the beautiful Zaanse Schans.

 Whether you are new to the great sport of fishing or an experienced angler, Michael’s goal as your guide is to help you catch a lot of fish and create a very memorable experience to take with yo


“Because of the many fishing stories my grandma told me about my grandfather Willem Renting I came in contact with sport fishing at an early age. I was about 6 years old when I caught my first fish in one of the canals in Amsterdam. With my bamboo fishing rod, I went looking for little fishes. In that same canal, the Hoornsloot, I caught my first eels and perch with nightcrawlers I collected myself. Not much later I landed my first pike. The love for fishing for predators was born”
