I live in the severnside town of Lydney, in the lovely Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire England, I am very close to the beautiful Wye Valley & the majestic River Wye, which is my favourite river of all.
When I was a professional match angler in the eighties, I fished the match circuit all over the country.
My favourite match water was the Gloucester to Sharpness Canal, I can't wait to fish this venue again and see how it has changed over the years.
Now that I am getting a bit older, I seem to have moved away from match fishing, I prefer the more laid back approach I enjoy with specimen angling, I love catching any species, but I just go out to target the specimen size ones.
Take care everyone, please do not hessitate to contact me, should there be anyway I can be of assistance to you, or your club, I am always willing to help and pay a visit.
Tight lines all, I hope to meet you on the bank one day.
