About Mick

From a young age I have always been passionate about fishing and you would always find me beside a lake or river fishing weekends and school holidays. Fishing for carp seriously came many years later which I think happens to many pleasure anglers. I have fished many waters over the years from high stocked busy day ticket venues to low stock big pit syndicates which are all rewarding in their own right.

Today I mainly concentrate on targeting big fish or a particular target fish. It’s what makes me tick and to me is more rewarding when it all comes right and you have achieved your goal. For many years I travelled south for my fishing as you can imagine in the north east where I live waters containing big carp are fairly non-existent.

For the past three seasons I have been concentrating on a large Bedfordshire pit containing some stunning mirrors which have been fished for by some of the country’s top anglers. This season I am about to start on a Nene Valley pit which holds some of the best looking commons I have ever seen, which I will keep you posted on as the season goes on. Hopefully I will be holding some of them!
