I have fished since I was a child, but my passion for carp fishing was born about 10 years ago. Now every year I spend around 120 nights fishing for carp.

The fishing technique that I prefer is definitely searching for large fish from the boat in large natural lakes.

I regularly compete, over 4 years now and with some excellent results: 3 provincial champion reaching my goal in 2013, I also entered in The Club Azzurro acheiving a seventh place overall in the final contest of the Italian Championship.

For several years I collaborated with CCmoore – an important bait company. Now I am with Gardner Tackle and I could not be happier.
