As well as being the SFUK Team Manager I am also a level 2 Angling Coach, guide and occasional writer.
When I get the chance to do my own fishing I am usually chasing predators. perch and zander in the autumn and early spring, pike through the winter and catfish during the warmer months. I mix this up with a bit of carp and barbel fishing as well.
I have fished for carp and catfish in Spain and France as well as in this country and I am lucky enough to get over to France every year and having a go for both, including running my ‘Catfish School’ for the last two years. Another aspect of the sport I enjoy is competition lure angling. This is something I am to do more of, but to be honest I’m happy fishing for anything as long as it pulls back.
