Well it all began when I was about eight years old maybe seven with all my mates we went down to Coate Water where I caught my first fish. It just started from there fishing Lawn Woods and Coate. I then got to fish in South Cerney Angling Club as well as Ashton Keynes Angling club. I cut my teeth fishing for tench and that’s when I got into carp fishing and I joined Horseshoe for a few years then I went on to Lynch Hill. My first trip on Willow I caught my first twenty the lake record at 25lb I was hooked!!
I started fishing a little horse shoe and it just progressed from there started fishing on Linear Fisheries Day Tickets and then put my name down for the syndicate which is where I do most of my fishing as I’m retired now , I fish from April until about October since then I have broke my pb common , pb mirror 4 times.
I’ve been using Hinders Bait for over 32 years now I first met Bryan 34 years ago when he got me into particles, since then it’s really Hinders baits I’ve been using. No Substitute for Quality.
