As a lifetime angler i have fished for most species over the years but particularly big tench, carp and pike. I have also been heavily involved with other specialist anglers in the politics of fishing, involving the Environment Agency and many others, to represent the best interests of anglers.
Having targeted a number of species over the years I now prioritise float fishing in particular, with roach being made first choice.
I was introduced to fishing at the age of 5 and was immediately bitten by the bug, as soon as I was able, I joined my local club and continued with them until I joined Essex Police in 1980.
I retired 5 years ago, having served over 30 years. Throughout my service I was involved with the Police coarse angling section and have Captained the match team for over 20 years. I continue in the role of Captain of both The Essex Police and Colchester Police teams to this day.
