Bio: I was born and bred in Sheffield, raised on Henderson’s relish and been fishing since the age of 4, Moving on to carp angling at the age of 9, so i’ve been carp angling for over 20 years now. I am equally at home fishing in the UK or abroad and simply love the challenge of a new and tricky venue, especially rivers. I managed to hit a massive milestone with the capture of a 40lb UK common back in 2005 at the age of 20, and hope to better that in the future. My recent angling highlights include coming third in the 2015 BCAC with angling sidekick Matt Quibell, and going to Rainbow in France for the first time where I managed to land a new foreign PB. Just three months later I broke both my foreign PB common and mirror in the same session at Les Telliats in October 2015, it has to be my best year carp angling to date.
