Nicky is a match angler based in Somerset and divides her time fairly evenly between her local Bristol Channel and the less muddy Dorset /Devon Coastline. Nicky has achieved eight caps fishing for the England Ladies Shore Angling Team both in the Home Nations and at International level. The highlights of her England career were winning Team Gold in the Home Internationals in Co. Wexford, Ireland in 2015 and competing in the World Championships in South Africa 2017. Following Cox & Rawles sponsorship of the England Ladies Homes Team in 2017 Nicky used Cox & Rawle hooks for the Worlds in South Africa and, during a Team practice session, hauled in an Eagle Ray estimated at around 30lbs on a Specimen Extra 1/0.
She enjoys catching the larger species such as ray, smoothhound and conger but often finds success in matches by scaling down the tackle and scratching for the smaller species. As well as enjoying the competitive side of sea angling she finds it the perfect way to unwind and often heads straight to the beach after a busy day at work.
