I've been a keen angler since my first trip back in the mid 80′s when my father took me sea fishing, twenty five years on and I still have vivid memories of that day. I spent most of my weekends during my teenage years hanging off Swansea's West Pier or wading through mud to reach the estuary. I would think nothing of cycling hours on end to reach likely fishing spots around the Gower coast.

10 Years ago I hooked in to my first ever Carp, at the time a Common Carp weighing 10lb 2oz was like nothing I'd ever experienced and the obsession that soon followed. In 2007 I decided to start an online fishing diary called 'Carp, Coarse and Swansea' initially it was a way of keeping all my fishing photos in one place. Somewhere in the five years since I started my little online photo album I became an angling blogger. In 2009 I posted my first video blog after landing a personal best Bream. I'm not quite sure when this became the norm but these days I rarely fish a session that doesn't required several hours video editing followed by writing an in-depth account of the session. To be perfectly honest I never expected the volume of interest in my video blogs but as the current view total over a third of a million! I guess I must be doing something right.
