ABOUT: 

Dan is the ‘pole man’ at Drennan International, working in the company’s service department, and a talented match angler with over 19 years experience in the angling trade.

His profile has really elevated since joining Kamasan Starlets, one of the top three teams in the country and since being taken into the fold, his results have rocketed, culminating in him making it all the way to the Semi-Final of the Drennan Knockout Cup in 2015.

Dan still loves fishing a variety of venues; everything from commercial fisheries to rivers like the Thames and the Soar.
