All-round Match Angler

I was introduced to fishing when I was 8 years old and I haven’t looked back since. Fishing plays a huge part in my life, I love every aspect of fishing. The highs, the lows, the preparation and the organisation you need to do in order to be fully prepared for a match. It’s an amazing feeling when you feel like your hard work has paid off, and that is was ultimately keeps me motivated and dedicated to the sport.

I fell very lucky to be fishing with an incredibly high class of angler at Barnsley Blacks. Teams fishing is very special, you pick up little hints and tips that you don’t even realise you’ve learnt. Learning from more experienced anglers is a great way of evolving your angling ability. I have been a part of the Barnsley Blacks set up for over two years now, and I can honestly say I have loved every minute of it.

I have also represented England at under 23 level in both Italy and Slovenia, which again developed my skills massively. I have fished a wide variety of European venues now and its eye opening to see the similarities, and the differences in their fishing to ours back in England.

I am also very fortunate to be a part of such a fantastic team at Preston Innovations and Sonubaits. I have been able to showcase a wide variety of the Preston Innovations products I use to a huge audience, which I believe is a great way of showing anglers how good the products are. The vast range of products cover all of my fishing both in the UK and abroad.
