Born in the greatest year of the twentieth century (1969) angling came to me one day in the late seventies when I was given a five foot long, pink glass rod, black prince reel, and a small box of tackle. With no encouragement or knowledge I spent a summer on the Sussex Ouse and caught nothing but strangely something kept me trying. Soon after, I was rewarded with a golden rudd from a small pond and a young piscator was born.

In the eighties I got the carp bug and spent many hours on Sussex lakes with my homemade North Westerns and a set of monkey climbers. Now I live in the East End of London as a commercial photographer and have kept my angling career ticking over here in London (especially the Lea) and travelling further a field to the Wye for barbel, fly fishing on the Nadder, Mackerel off the Devon Coast or back down to Sussex for carp. Angling for me has now become a simple pleasure with minimal tackle and the place more important than the catch. More stealth and less gear!

Thinking about it I have almost returned to those summers in the late seventies on the Ouse, but this time hopefully a few fish to complete the picture.
