I first started my angling journey over 35 years ago. Growing up with a river at the bottom of the garden and living on the fringe of a 600 acre country park full of gravel pits. This is how I got the angling bug.

My early angling life consisted of all round pleasure fishing. Following that I started match fishing, captaining the Junior County Squad at the age of 11. Soon after that I moved onto all round specimen fishing targeting species like tench, bream and pike.

I qualified to be an angling coach in 2014 and I help the Angling Trust to introduce kids to angling. Teaching them the basics of fishing is immensely rewarding and I’m happy to see a new generation of children excited and ready to learn.
