Like most I started my fishing at a young age on the canals but in my teenage years progressed to carp but after moving to Scotland in my early 20's lost the appetite due to the lack of waters there. I found my mojo again in my early 30's and began making the long trips down south to the commercial waters again.

Since moving to Warwickshire and the journeys now only taking a little over a hour to either the colne valley or nene valley my fishing has taken of. Making selection for the Scottish international team and joining mainline baits and Rig It Tackle and now the next step joining Summit Tackle.

I work away a lot and spend my time on the bank rather than in hotels so fish a multitude of overnights ran during the week.

If you see me on the bank come and say hello, don't be shy, as I'm always up for a chat and discussion about the tools I use to help other decide and because I don't drink tea or coffee you will probably be offered a Diet Coke.

Tight lines and hopefully see you on the bank sometime.
