Since starting this web site I have been asked many questions about me, who I am, what I do etc. So here are some of those questions answered.
Q. Where do you live?
A. In 2013 my wife and I moved to North Dorset. Somewhere we have wanted to live for a long time.
Before this we lived in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.
Q. Where do you fish?
A. At the moment I do not have a regular water. I moved to North Dorset in 2013 and I am still searching for a regular haunt. Before the move I was a regular at Linear Fisheries in Oxfordshire (and I still like to go occasionally), I was a member of Thorney Weir-Mets for 2 years and then a member of RDAA (Reading) for 2 years. I was also a member of Leighton Buzzard for a couple of years so I could fish at Claydon House.
I have obviously fished a good few other places and I like to fish 24 to 48hr sessions when I can but will happily get out just for a day session.
UPDATE: I have recently (January 2016) joined a Dorset angling club.
Q. Have you ever fished in France?
A. No. I don't get the urge to like many other anglers do. If I was a part of a group of anglers then I would probably reconsider and treat it like a lads holiday but otherwise its not something I would plan........England has more than enough fish to target for me but if the opportunity to fish in France came I would most likely go.
UPDATE: I recently won a competition, the prize being a French lake for 1 week. There will be a blog in March 2016.
NEWS: My new French PB is 54lb 8oz common.
Q. Do you work for or are you sponsored by any fishing tackle/bait company?
A. In February 2015 I started working full time for CC Moore. My job role is Supervisor of the Hookbait Production division, Graphic Design and Product Photography.
Q. What bait do you use?
A. Boilies mostly are favoured by me, I use all the other regular baits too, such as corn, maize, meat, pellet, magot etc. Depends on the venue, situation and time of year.
