I’ve met some great people, fished some great places and been very fortunate in testing prototype products, giving input/opinion on things that I find interesting. Despite my age of 38 I still feel like a kid in a sweet shop and when exciting new products are ready for launch and in-turn I get to use them in my own angling.
My journey with GT started when I sent Lewis an e-mail after a few other anglers prompted me to try my luck. I politely enquired if there was any chance of involvement within the team. Not because I wanted free tackle or for egotistical promotion but purely because I love carp fishing and wanted to have a platform to not only share my experiences, but also to learn and improve as an angler and as a person.
It’s no coincidence that many great anglers have surrounded themselves and learnt from other successful, educated anglers, so this is exactly what I did. It’s been a long learning curve that’s forever evolving, but during this period I’ve gained so much knowledge and memories from not just the carp I’ve caught or the places I’ve visited but also about filming, media and the industry in general.
