I started fishing on the river Thames with dad from the age of four , mainly fished freshwater until I passed my car test at 17 , then started travelling around the uk looking for sea bass etc.

Fished for the big catfish in the early days 1990s, guided Europeans on the Ebro, cinca segre in Spain until 2001, started kayak fishing on my return to the uk, chasing sea bass on the kayak, it was around this time after catching mainly small bass, I started to get the travel bug again but ventured out of Europe and further afield into Africa. In 2011 I started researching the tigerfish in west Africa and made the plunge to go in pursuit of them in April 2013, I set up my guiding company in west Africa specialising in filling sportsfishermans dreams of catching these ultra hard to catch fish.
