I’ve always been fascinated with water…
As a youngster I’d spend all of the summer holidays around lakes, ponds, streams & rivers. Either chasing after the newts or the stickle-backs – or even just plain old stream jumping. It didn’t matter, as long as I was by the water.
Obsessed with everything that lived in the lakes, soon saw me trying to catch them on rod and line and this progressed into a lifelong affair with Carp fishing.
More than anything I love to be outdoors in the elements, I love the wild life and nature. Carp fishing for me has always been personal thing. It’s me against the carp. I get the biggest buzz targeting certain fish. There’s nothing like slipping the net under your target.
