Fishing since age 9 and first cut my teeth on South Shields Pier and the river Tyne.
Joined several clubs over the years and would recommend everybody to do so as its a fast track way of learning venues and techniques.
Past few years I have fished at national & international level for the Sea Anglers Match Federation (SAMF) and donned the England shirt for an unnofficial cap at the stirling angling festival on a team of 5,I am also Press & Media Officer for SAMF.
Managed to get selected for England squad a few years back and next ambition would be to represent my country at World Level.
I also work as Shore Angling Competitions Coordinator International Marine Teams and Competitions Group, Angling Trust along wth running Rite Gear Angling Centre in North Norfolk.
My passion is competition fishing and helping others improve their skills and get more enjoyment out of their fishing, hence my involvement in any way possible to promote fishing.
