Competing in a world fly-fishing championship in the Czech Republic was a homecoming of sorts for Roman Matusinsky, of Coplay, Lehigh County, Pa.
Although he has lived in the U.S. since 1998 and competes for his adopted land, Matusinsky, 55, was born and raised in the former Czechoslovakia, about six hours from where the ninth FIPS-Mouche Masters Fly Fishing Championship was recently held on the Vlatava River and two lakes.
“It was amazing, going back to my home country – really hard to describe,” said Matusinsky.
