BEST CATCH:Catching a brace of tench going 10lb 12oz & 11lb 11oz & another brace the following year going 10lb 2oz and 12lb 6oz from a southern gravel pit. Another memorable moment was catching a 3lb 1oz & 3lb 10oz brace of rudd from a tough low stock venue.

FAVOURITE METHODS: I don’t think you can beat trotting a float down a crystal clear chalk stream. Seeing that float disappear and then your rod in full bend is very exciting.

FAVOURITE VENUES: The River Thames. Every session on the Thames is exciting as it throws up a number of big fish each year of all species and your next bite could be a very special fish.

ANGLING AMBITIONS: To enjoy every moment, Britain’s wildlife and catch some lovely fish along the way.

FAVOURITE ITEM OF TACKLE:  Supplex Flurocarbon Hooklink. I am a huge fan of Supplex hooklink and use it regularly in my angling for a number of species.

ABOUT: I have been fishing since I was six years old catching small gudgeon from a tiny tributary of the River Medway and I have loved the sport ever since. I enjoy fishing for all species on a number of different venues across the country and consider myself an all-round angler. Big fish hunting is something I have a real passion for and a lot of my fishing is on large low stock gravel pits. I also have two amazing children and really enjoy spending time with my family in Kent.
