Favourite Venue: River Bann 

Favourite Species: Roach 

Favourite Style/Approach: Whip /Slider 

Favourite Hinders Bait: Pollys Supercharged Natural Black 

Most memorable session:  this would have to be Peg 7 third day of Bann Bonanza. No form all week got there and decided I needed a weight and went for it, lying 32nd in the festival. I used Supercharged Natural Black and crumb for my mix. I found when I fed it the roach went crazy, topping and swirling over my feed. There were 15 in the section weighing 4-5kilo.I had 225 roach for 18 kilo 650 to win the day, best overall weight of the week and a festival win.

I love match angling on natural venues, catching wild fish on open loughs and fast flowing rivers. Putting myself against the best there is and trying to test my ability at all times..
