I started fishing as a lad over my local river for trout and chub, this progressed to sea fishing which I spent 25 years at catching some good fish around the coast. After giving up fishing for 10 years I started working with a few guys that went carp fishing and after putting up with all the carp talk for a few years at dinner n break times I decided I knew so much about it now I may as well give it a bash. I started out on a local runs water getting to grips with making rigs different baits untill I got the bug I decided to fish an urban venue 5 mins away from me known as the concrete jungle aka Cardiff Wharf. It took me a good 6 months to catch a carp but it payed off with my UK pb to date just over 25 pound mirror known as the pig after catching a few others I moved to another venue the birch syndicate where I fish till this day with a few stunning fish from there. August this year I decided to travel to France to fish etang des royals where I got top rod for the week with 13 carp and 2 pb’s a 38 pound common and a 51 pound mirror living the dream
