Hi everybody My name is John Stembridge I have been fishing now for some 38 yrs. I like to think of myself as a fare all round angler,fishing for most species, carp being one of my favourites.
I have had fish of over 50lb on the continent and up 43lb from the UK. I also like to dabble in a bit of sea fishing for bass and smoothound on the odd occasion ,as i live only minutes from my local beach on the south coast. I have a family with children and work for myself as a general builder.
My time is limited on the banks so grabbing every opportunity ,no matter how short will see me dipping a line somewhere.either be it a lake, river or the sea. I like to think it makes me a better angler,as i want to maximise my effort on my short sessions,always walking and watching for a quick bite ,rather than setting up my stool and waiting for something too happen,ill go search them out and try my luck!
As they say effort=reward
