Welcome to 

My name is Steven Holliday (Doc), and on my homepage, you will see me fishing venues with the pole. 

My goal is to have fun and catch plenty of fish - sometimes on my own but mainly with my angling friends. You can see some more information about me in my short angling bio here.

I hope to pass on lots of good information on venues and tactics via my practice sessions and the few matches that I fish, mostly in the Netherlands.

The site ran under the name from 2014 to 2021. From January 2022, the site has transferred to - as I have taken over ownership of the site from Roger. 

Late November on the Eem - a nice days fishing on the long pole.

All of the content on has been created by me, so it makes sense for the Website to belong to me - and Simply Pole Fishing is the most appropriate translation of Einfach Stippen.

It's great that the website passed the 250,000 visitors mark before I switched over to

For seven years I wrote about my fishing on Now I have transferred everything to the new site - on we go!

I hope to write much more than in previous years, and also hope to go on more angling tours. Roger has said he will put more effort into the site, so there should be a lot of good stuff coming your way soon in German as well. 

The Einfach Stippers on tour in Holland 2019. We had a great week.

I hope that you also get some enjoyment - and knowledge - from the articles that I write here.

 Paul Keizers - Hengelsport Hennie Kruidenier 

Receiving my new pole section from Paul Keizers after using my Sensas Joker Card in 2014 and are extremely grateful to Paul Keizers of Hengelsport Hennie Kruidenier for his valuable support. I first met Paul in 2014 when he was the only shop in Holland that could get me a new No. 6 section for my Sensas pole.

Paul has a fantastic shop in Haaksbergen with tackle from all the top manufacturers. He has all of the Preston Innovations range in the shop as well as Drennan, Kamasan, Garbolino, Matrix, Sensas, Zammataro, VDE & Guru to name just a few. Paul has an extensive range of the latest Sensas poles on display and will configure a pack just the way you want it.

His team will give you great advice based on their extensive fishing knowledge as accomplished anglers themselves.

The shop has recently undergone a complete transformation and is now well worth a visit even if you live a long way from Haaksbergen. Check out his shop on the link in the right hand column - you can order online as well.

Thanks for your visit, we hope you enjoy the site.
