I started fishing at around 8 or 9 years old and I've been 'hooked' ever since. Match Fishing is a huge part of my life, the buzz and adrenaline it brings is like nothing else and I am always looking at ways to improve and develop my skills as an angler.

Being involved with Preston Innovations is a fantastic opportunity to develop as an angler and I cant wait to start the journey!
