I started fishing when I was about 11 or 12. I used to go to a local pond and fish for anything after school with my 2 best mates Eddie and Karl.
I used to love playing football at the weekend and then once I got older and was allowed to go fishing overnight, the football slowly began to fade out. Fishing is my get away. I used to work all around the clock, doing a 3 shift pattern job in the motor manufacturing industry, so to be able to escape of a weekend and switch off from it all, was what I love and still enjoy it now. This is even more so now, being fortunate enough to be working in the industry.
Carp fishing for me is the best form of escapism and there’s so many people i’ve met along the way who I’m grateful enough to be friends with. It doesn’t matter how good you think you are at it, you will never stop learning!
