Like so many others I started fishing at the age of 6 with my dad, fishing for whatever came along. 20 years ago the carp bug hit me and they have been my predominant target since then, although I do enjoy a bit of river and predator fishing every now and then. Living near Yateley has me spoilt for choice as far as venues are concerned and over the years I have pretty much fished them all with a degree of success and still continue to do so.
Being a family man and working full time takes up most of my time so I usually fish overnighters, making preparation a key part of my angling as I do not want to be wasting time tying rigs and baiting up when I’m actually fishing.
