It all began when I was 4 years old. My dad took me out for a few hours float fishing down to a local lake, years went past where we would go out most weekends and school holidays, float fishing and feeder fishing. It wasn’t until I was 6 years old that I caught my first carp and from that moment I was hooked (no pun intended). My dad then started taking me carp fishing, and taught me everything that I know today.
Within the last 7 to 8 years I have got massively into the competition side of things by entering a number of carp matches, the BCAC, British Carp Angling Cup and a couple across the water. Most of my fishing is around the carp fishing match scene, always chopping and changing to get that extra bite or two. Since I’ve been entering competitions, I have had a few podium places, so I am looking for one better next time.
