I still remember it all like it was yesterday. When I was about 10 years old it was hard work trying to get my dad out fishing. I started off as many people did on a little whip catching loads of roach, Rudd and perch and enjoying the sport. After catching a few bigger species we stepped up the gear and started fishing for just carp. With dad knowing Dave Levy from the boxing gym Dave took me under his wing and carp fishing just got better from that day. Catching my first even 20lber from churchgate was like a dream come true.

This year has been a bit slow for myself due to being very busy with work it’s hard to find the time at the moment. I have got a ticket on Essex Carp Syndicates The Rise this year so I’m hoping have A few from there.
