Tell Us A Little About Your Angling Life: I started fishing at the age of 8, my dad used to take me pike fishing to the river Stour, we never caught much but I used to love going with him. At the age of twelve, I got into carp fishing at a local pond catching some nice commons to 8 lb on worm. One day whilst fishing worm at the pond I caught a monster Perch by mistake, I could not believe the size of it from that day on a specimen hunter was born.
