I've been fishing since the age of 6. I used to fish traditional methods with my Dad, float fishing on my local day ticket lakes and rivers for anything and everything. After experiencing catching carp on the float this gave me the real carp fishing bug.
During my teens I spent many an evening and school holiday on the bank trying to outwit them. I love a challenge and trying to catch target or named fish from intimate waters is my passion and fortunately, both in England and France, I've been lucky enough to achieve many of my goals with my current pb standing at 61lb 8oz.
The 61lb 8oz mirror known as the 'unknown mirror' was my highlight of 2016, which actually formed part of a 117lb brace! Caught on the ever faithful belachan shrimp, a 15mm pop up present over a scattering of 15mm & 20mm freebies. I am currently fishing a tricky syndicate in Sussex and a small intimate day ticket targeting a named 30lb common and 30lb scaley mirror.
During my angling career I've also been lucky enough to contribute in CarpTalk magazine where I wrote the Sussex and Kent fishery reviews giving me a great insight into the industry.
Mistral baits have been in my armoury for a long time and will be for years to come. With the reliability and quality they provide, it's a real honour to become part of the team.
Tight lines and stay lucky, Danny
