I really love long range fishing and this has proved to be a great advantage on many of the waters that I have fished over the years. Putting a bait in an area that is out of reach for most other anglers is a huge edge but it’s not all about smashing one out! I am also passionate about setting traps in the edge. I have learnt lots from watching carp at close quarters and as a result, I have honed various presentations and devised some really effective rigs that have been featured in many of the top carp magazines.
I have always been very interested in carp baits and I have been working in the industry for the last five years. I now own a company called Cutting Edge Products, it was formed a little over a year ago but it’s going really well. I get a huge kick when I hear success stories from happy anglers who are using the baits that I have produced, it’s very rewarding.
