I have been carp fishing for 25 years learning my skills from my match fishing days where I used fish places like the River Thames and the river lea. Catching the carp bug while fishing the Grand union canal where I landed a few large carp I have simply continued with my passion.
My English personal best is a 49.lb common from Norfolk caught this year using mainline boilies and had other forties from Essex and Norfolk. Catching is what I love and I am happy to help others. I have also achieved my level 2 coaching badge so can teach with authority.
I am a consultant for mainline baits, Hooked on Baits and Atomic tackle. I also work part time for angling technics
I regularly Fishing France with my Personal Best being a 73lb 4 oz. mirror and have caught over 100 fifties and 23 sixties

I am looking forward to working with Catch and Release and will be keeping you all up to date with my adventures.
