I have been a member of the Mistral Baits Team now for over 10 years and have been fishing since my earliest memories as a young boy, where my brother Paul took me out onto the River Stour in Blandford Forum, where we would fish for all manner of species.
A few years later I discovered carp fishing on a local farm pond stocked with fish up to 10lb and the thrill and power of the fish captivated me. From that point and over the last 25 years carp fishing has been the main focus of my angling. I have tickets on several syndicate lakes, fishing for carp of a lifetime, but I am equally happy on a day ticket water catching similar fish to which I caught all those years ago.
I have a YouTube blog called Back Of The Landing Net, which we have been making for over a decade, as well as a personal picture blog on Instagram. I choose Mistral Baits because from the first time I came up to the factory and met everyone and saw the ingredients, knowledge and attention to detail, I knew everything about the brand stood for quality and my catch rate has increased ever since.
