Originally from a course fishing background, James now concentrates all of his time into saltwater fishing and has a keen eye for the correct tackle choices. The Bristol Channel is his main stomping ground where specimen hunting is a firm favourite, however, he also travels around the United Kingdom as a keen match angler, which when combined gives him a very diverse range of sea angling skills.

The highlight of his angling career so far was fishing for England in the World Pairs at the 2019 World Angling Games in South Africa and coming home with a bronze medal was a very proud moment for him. Boat and shore, James enjoys and has experience in many different forms of sea fishing, these range from lighter beach work to much heavier disciplines over rough ground.

James has worked closely with us here at Cox & Rawle for several years now, he likes trying out and testing products for us and always gives an honest recommendation.
