I’m the UK Sales Manager for RidgeMonkey and I’ve worked in the angling industry for over 13 years. I’m a passionate angler that’s been fishing for over 24 years.

I enjoy fishing both at home and abroad. I currently have syndicate tickets on many lakes in the South East of England, Swan & Tonford Chilham Mill Tip lake and I am a bailiff on The Chilston Stour Lake. I have caught 50lb+ fish from Croatia, France, Hungary and Italy and managed many larger fish up to 78lb while filming ‘The Great Escape’.

My angling highlights include landing 109 carp in a week in Italy at Parco Del Brenta, and during 2021 landing a 30lb carp every month of the year January – September.
