I am self confessed specimen hunter. I believe that many of the countries largest fish (which possibly receive the most angling pressure) become wise to certain baits and methods of bait presentation. My angling interests therefore center around fishing for these specimens in ways that they have perhaps not seen before, using new baits presented with finesse or by targeting the fish at certain times of the year when they receive the lowest amount of angling pressure or are most likely to be feeding – thus maximising my chances of catching. It sometimes takes a lot of patience, but the rewards are worth it.
After starting fishing at a young age I was hooked. My earliest memories are of fishing the Cowlick Loop for Roach and Bream with my Dad, and later moving onto the mighty Trent and fishing the Golden Mile and The Nelson Field. But it wasn’t until within the last 5 years or so that I started to take it more seriously. In the summer of 2009 my cousin Christian phoned me and asked me if I wanted to go spinning one afternoon after being suggested it by his mum (my auntie). The rest as they say is history. I have travelled up and down the country fishing some of the most beautiful and picturesque places on the planet.
I have made this website for all to follow me on my journey to catch some of Britain’s most rare and spectacular creatures, and show you how I do it.
