My name is Patrice Fradin and I became a member of the Team Gardner in France since 2012. I have fished for our ‘ladies’ since the 80s, with the beginning of the craze for carp fishing with English methods, the first boilies, fishing on a hair.

I am lucky to live in the South West of France, near to Bordeaux, a well known region for its large lakes. My working hours allow me to fish many days a year. I also enjoy fishing small waters as well as large lakes, dikes on the marshland and big rivers. I will basically fish anywhere as long as it is interesting and poses a challenge. I hope that despite being in my fifties I will be fishing for a long time to come.
