Recognised as a remarkable specimen hunter his personal best is a fish of 65lb 4oz.

Planning and research feature highly on his approach and 'targeting' a fish combined with an instinct is often how he goes about getting results.

My top tip

Its good to have a plan but always keep your options open and don't be afraid to try something you think will work.

Favourites

I don't have a type or style, I try to be a jack of all trades and a master of none! Most importantly being able to adapt to any situation.

Away from fishing

Keeping my girlfriend happy in order to keep my dinner on the table!

I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW

I have never been a full time angler and have always worked full-time contrary to popular belief!
