About me

A keen angler from around the age of 9, initially sea/estuary fishing in the north west of England and then turning to fishing my local ponds and rivers on my return to the north east.

I have had a few breaks from angling over the years, mainly due to working abroad for long periods of time. Since 2010 I have been able to fish more regularly and have mainly been concentrating on pike fishing during the cooler months and a bit of eel fishing during the summer.

More recently I have been spending more time fishing for other river species such as barbel, chub and perch. I have started setting myself a few targets each season, with the aim of increasing some of my bests as the years go by.

I decided to start a blog mainly as a fishing diary but also to encourage me to take more photographs whilst on the bank.
