Feel Alive.

With distracting anticipation we all savour the prospect of being ‘at the water.’ We implicitly believe it will bring reward and satisfaction.

Yet we know not if weather or fish will be kind to us. But that the thrill of action, calm of solitude, joy of victory or indeed rare moments of nature that our Earth freely gives us may form our day, in whole or part.

Each has their reason, their thirst to quench. Still we all share one single desire; to Feel Alive.

I knew it was good news when it was announced that the 2018 qualifier for the World Club Feeder Championships would be on the Gloucester Canal. Two reasons really: firstly, it’s good to keep up the canal’s profile and availability for these events; secondly, I knew we would have a chance of winning it whatever the competition we were faced with. I am also in a privileged position in as much as I fished a World Club Float Championship in the Czech Republic in 2000 and I know it’s a once in a lifetime experience, so I was excited that other younger members of the Daiwa Gordon League squad could also share that opportunity.

Ashmead has to be one of the most atmospheric carp waters in the country and I have some wonderful memories of sessions spent there. It’s not the easiest water I’ve ever fished and by no stretch of the imagination would I call it a runs water, but the rewards can be very special. When I go to Ashmead, I know I’m going to be in good company with idyllic surroundings but catching will require that I work hard and have luck on my side.
