I was first introduced to fishing by my dad when I was 7 years old. We went mackerel fishing off a boat in wales and I was hooked! I started off freshwater fishing by catching small roach and perch down a local lake and soon became infatuated with catching the biggest and best looking specimens. My carp fishing evolved from here and I was soon targeting the big carp in lakes local to me, one of which my dad still bailiffs now! My love for the hobby has never faltered and I get more and more excited by my fishing every time I go.
