Have been fishing since the age of 4 with my Dad picnicking with the family where he would take his tackle and do a bit of float fishing, my first fish was a roach followed by a 4lb tench and from then on I was hooked.
43 years on and still get the buzz the night before a session. Progressing through the years I got into match fishing and that’s when I started to catch lots of carp on the pole, this gave me the bug for going after larger carp and packed up the match fishing and dedicated all my fishing to carp fishing.
Have carp fished now for 25 years, travelled to France a few times and fished some lovely waters in the UK. Currently fish monks pit syndicate in Cambridgeshire which has a good stock of big fish.
