Sea Angling has never been something I've simply done. I've lived and breathed it for my entire life. Simply put- I need it to function properly!
Since picking up a rod at the age of seven, it soon became clear that the sea held some alluring form of magnetism that I found compelling and irresistable. I realised in the years to come that fishing was not to be a simple hobby, but an all consuming infactuation that would lead me on a massive adventure and ultimately, by some lucky stroke, fuel a career too.
I'm Currently writing for Black Tide Fishing magazine and have contributed to Sea Angler, Total Sea Fishing and Sea Angling News aswell as presenting a number of shows on BT Sports and Online Fishing TV.
I have assisted numerous tackle companies including Svendsen Sports and currently hold the saltwater consultant position with Daiwa UK. As if that wasn't enough, I also manage Veals Mail Order, probably the most successful online tackle dealer in the UK today.
Nothing gives me a bigger kick now though than sharing my knowledge with those wanting to get more out of their fishing and this is why I am embarking on guided shore fishing trips down on the beautiful Bristol Channel.
