Favourite Venue: Woodchester
Favourite Species: Carp
My approach is spending as much time as possible researching the venue and then putting in long hours waterside learning what I can to catch my target fish from a venue and I therefore will vary my style to suit different waters/fish but predominantly I'm a boilie angler.

I grew up in Kent and was taken out fishing from 3 years old by my late father who was an avid fisherman. He taught me how to trot a float down the river, fish the local gravel pits and also sea fishing from both the shore and his boat. I have spent my life fishing for lots of different species around the country but mainly carp/coarse fish, predators and sea fishing.
I moved to the Cotswolds 21 years ago and due to the abundance of great carp lakes around these have been my main target for a number of years now. I've been lucky to have been friends with Keith Sykes for many years now and have fished and worked with him for a number of years both in his time at DT Baits and the last 5 years at Nash and am really excited to be able to continue to do so with Hinders. I prefer to fish for old, character UK bred fish rather than just thinking about size and weights.
