ABOUT: Kevin has been involved with some of the best teams in the country winning many team awards with his home town Rugby in his early days before joining Hinckley where he fished with the legendry Billy Makin. From here he fished with Team Image alongside Mark Pollard before moving to a successful Trevs Browning to fish with the awesome Dave Vincent and a host of top rate anglers. His next move saw him join Drennan Oxford at a time when the boys were starting to win in the big league showing some of the top river teams in the country that they were a serious outfit. More recently Kevin has concentrated more on his individual fishing with a good deal of success, especially since taking early retirement and having more time to devote to his fishing. “My proudest achievement of late has been my involvement with the England Veterans Team. Wearing an England shirt is a great honour and the culmination of a lifetime of devotion to the sport but I’m happy fishing anywhere doing any method. Angling is my life!”
