My fishing is very simple and I like to carry the bare minimum, keeping me mobile. I fish short sessions which suits me down to the ground, keeping away from the crowds and popular stretches. Even my carp fishing is stalking, often using ‘old school’ tactics: float fishing, free-lining and reading the water trying to make something occur rather than waiting for it to happen. Long gone are the night sessions in a bivvy, instead I pick the right times to fish.
I am a life-long Chelsea fan since boyhood when we were a yo-yo team, relegated promoted again, lol. I like indie & rock music.
