I’ve been fishing from a very young age, but discovered kayak fishing in 2005. I like nothing more than loading my gear into my campervan and disappearing for a few days on the water in search of the next fine specimen.
I mainly fish the stunning Yorkshire East Coast. It has everything you could wish for and the scenery is absolutely outstanding. The fishing here can be some of the best in the country and I like to target Pollock, Cod and Bass using Shads, Jelly worms and Plugs.
Over the last couple of years, I've entered the freshwater scene and target mainly Pike and Perch using lures and the ever popular drop shot style of fishing. Whilst sceptical at first, I have grown to love the fresh stuff and now compete at national events throughout the UK with great success.
The reason I love kayak fishing so much (it's an obsession really!) is one minute you’re sat tranquilly drifting along looking at the birds and wildlife, the next minute you have carnage on the kayak with a good fish across your lap and a smile across your face! It gives you such a feeling of freedom and you see things that you wouldn’t from the shore. Kayak fishing is a massive part of my life and I’m proud to be involved with this growing sport and to fish in the Ocean Kayak UK Fishing Team.
