Normally one fish each season stands out - but this season there have been a few contenders. A double figure brown trout on the fly from Lechlade, backed up with a PB rainbow. Blog post.
A monster carp from a sparsely populated London canal, caught on floating crust, netted while lying on the floor to make my net reach the water and weighing in at 28lb 12oz. Blog post.
A new species, well hybrid, the ultra rare choach (chub/roach). I never thought I’d see one of these let alone catch one, and a 3lb 8oz beauty from a local river was a fantastic surprise. Blog post.
All the arm ache of a daytime bull shark from a deserted island, one of three sharks that day and it really felt like fishing in paradise. Part of an amazing shark fishing holiday. Blog post.
On the flip side of fishing in paradise, I’ve included this stunning barbel. Caught in horrendous conditions; cold, pouring with rain and blowing a gale - just proves you’ve got to be in it to win it. Blog post.
