As I now smash into my 30s, and with a young family that I’m in love with, angling is changing for me but the passion and love for it still burns strongly. I have fished for the last few years on the Essex Manor and have thoroughly enjoyed it, catching my first and second English 40lb plus commons and many other target fish to 49lb. I’ve just bought a house in Marlow right next to the famous Old Father Thames so I may be doing some river carping in the near future! It’s approaching 5 years since I began with RidgeMonkey and the growth of the company is staggering! This year I have a Dinton ticket so if I’m lucky a few White Swan residents may grace my net – enjoy your angling everyone and don’t take it too seriously!
