I started fishing for carp when I landed my first big carp at 14lb when I was 12 . I then went on to target them on day tickets until I had my first UK 40 from Star Lane. Since then I have had 18 UK forties and a 50lb. I enjoy my carp match fishing as well as winning two titles. I do enjoy my European fishing as well regularly going and I have had 50lb plus fish from four different countries.
