I spent many years targeting specimen fish of a wide range of species until I discovered Pike. After the capture of my first Pike, my angling career took a huge turn and I was hooked on predator fishing.
 
My kayak angling began in early 2014 with the purchase of my first Ocean Kayak Trident 13. After a few sessions, I quickly realised the potential of fishing for specimen predators by having a stealthy approach, using light gear to fish in remote areas of rivers and lakes, often unfishable from the bank.
 
Fishing from a kayak is the ideal platform for targeting freshwater predators, using a wide range of techniques, from Ultra-light Jigging and Drop-shotting through to Jerkbaits, dead baits and even live bait!
 
I have had an amazing first year fishing from a Kayak, with notable captures being Perch to 3.8lbs, Pike to double figures, and even a French Catfish vertical jigging!
 
Throughout the last year, I have been able to compete on the UK Kayak Angling circuit. I have had great experiences of fishing on both freshwater and on the sea, and meeting some fantastic people along the way. I have now got the bug for competitive angling and look forward to competing alongside the Ocean Kayak UK team for many years to come.
 
It is a real honour to have been invited to become the newest member to the Ocean Kayak UK Fishing Team and to join the Adventures on the Water Pro Staff! I aim to bring my freshwater predator knowledge and experience to the table and look forward to competing alongside the Ocean Kayak UK Fishing Team.
