I’ve been fishing since I was around 12 years old. It all started out on the local match lakes catching silvers, but after a couple of sessions doing so, I saw my first carp whilst walking past the ‘carp lake’ on the complex. From that moment I’ve been carp fishing whenever and wherever I can! Around 2 years later I managed my first twenty, which also happened to be the biggest carp in that very lake I was walking around.
Since then I have been fishing the Ringwood club, starting off on one of the smaller pits catching some amazing fish and enjoying some great socials! After 2 years I caught my target and the lakes gem at 39lb 14oz.
Since then I have been targeting a large gravel pit, managing 2 x 40lb commons in my first year, to then have mirrors of 37lb and 45lb the next year was an unreal buzz!
