ABOUT: River fishing has always been my favourite style of fishing, and something I still really enjoy but once team fishing became part of my angling I had to turn to other venues. My first serious team was Browning Hotrods where I learned to fish the Fenland drains with bread and squats etc. We fished nationals and other team events like Evesham etc. and we had some brilliant results in my time there. Getting asked to join the mighty Barnsley Blacks was a true honour and something you cant refuse. Having been with the team for a few years now I’ve had some brilliant success in my personal and team fishing with the Div 1 national win on the trent being a dream of mine from a youngster!
I’ve been fortunate to learn from the very best in all styles of fishing from float to feeder and being able to travel out with the Barnsley team to international events like the World Club Championships helped me understand the international side of our sport. Feeder fishing has been something I’ve always been passionate about, particularly on rivers catching smaller fish like roach and dace.
