About me -
I am a father of 3 young girls (I’ll get at least one of them into fishing one day!) and have been fishing for the past 25 years on and off. I first started with a rod, float and hook, then moved more into carp fishing with some success, however, it has been the last year or so where I have had most of my success. I have moved to match style fishing methods, and with a “small” amount of direction, have managed to find out I’m not half bad. Recently I have managed some epic sessions, and totalled over 1100 carp on the bank my last season.
I usually fish the up to one of the islands on the large lake at my favourite venue, Flaxlands Fishery, about once a week or more if family life allows it.
