My Angling Profile

Age:                                         32
Location:                                  Gloucester
Team:                                       Drennan Banbury Gunsmiths
Highest match weight:              394lb Rolfs Lake (5 hour match)
Most memorable matches:         26lb at Radley on the Angling Times.  I had 20lb of roach and 6lb of chub.  I won my section, but was only fourth overall!  An awesome part of the river Thames.
                                                I had 24lb of a squatt roach on the Kennet and Avon canal at Crofton.  I had 367 fish, run out of squatt with an hour to go and therefore loose fed pinkies and the fish got even bigger and quicker.....
Sponsors:                                  Vespe/ Colmic
Angling Influences:                   Neil Richards help me a lot in my younger days, when I fished for Swindon Talisman, now Colmic Talisman.  When I joined Drennan Oxford aged 23, Mick Denton helped me immensely, especially in the way of thinking to approach a venue.  Drennan Oxford continue their success, with a good bunch of lads.
Pole used:                                 Drennan Zircon for my silver fish pole and have a prototype Colmic Airon 44 that I am testing at the moment.
