For as long as I can remember I have been an angler, in every discipline that I have had access to. As a junior I was a keen fly angler, and after years of practice and dedication I managed to obtain a position in the Welsh youth teams which gave me the honour of representing my country in two home Internationals and 1 World championship before I was 16 years old.
While fly fishing was my main focus I was also a very keen match angler and that’s where my interest in carp was first ignited at around the age of 12. I quickly developed a love for carp and pretty soon the urge to get out on the bank was growing more and more fierce with every session. I worked hard to develop my skills over the next few years and I eventually started targeting waters with bigger fish. I put aside the fly and match gear and started to target the bigger residents in my local lakes with a dedicated carp set up.
I still have an interest in all other disciplines of angling although I rarely deviate from my personal carp fishing targets. I have a current PB of 37lb 12oz.
No matter what time of year a good quality fishmeal boilie is my go to bait. The only time I use anything different is when I add particle to my bait mix during the warmer months, but boilies will always make up at least 50% of my bait mixture.
Looking forward, I have a number of target waters that hold some incredibly special carp and it’s only a matter of time before I add some of those beauties to my photo album.
