I started CarpLife Products in 2017. Running the company & family life take up most of my time & I don't get on the bank as much as i'd like. When I do get out it's generally to wind down, relax & think of new products! I'm also part owner of a fishery with 2 waters & I love seeing others catch our fish, so we can monitor their progress & condition, as much as I enjoy fishing for them myself.
I started fishing around five years old. My dad would take me with him whenever he could. I started with a float and slowly progressed, working my way through feeder and tip fishing until I discovered Carp fishing around the age of 11. I now fit my fishing around a busy work & family life. I normally manage one or two mid week overnighters, it’s not easy but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

I'm 9 years old and an all round angler. I fish mainly for Carp but I also fish for Barbel, Chub, Pike, and anything else that comes my way! I’ve been fishing with my dad since I was 4 and he’s been teaching me everything he knows. I love fishing rivers more than lakes but enjoy fishing still waters as well.
I’ve caught Barbel to 8lb 4oz, Pike to 11lb, Zander to 5lb & Tench to 7lb. I’ve also fished in Thailand & caught Siamese Carp, Redtails, Stingrays, Pacu, Julians Carp and lots of other species. I just enjoy fishing with my dad and being out in the fresh air enjoying bank life.

I’m an all round angler & love my fishing. My grandad taught me when I was young & I’ve been fishing since I was 5. I’ve fished all types of waters & I’ve caught Carp in Thailand up to 152lb and Mekong Catfish to 180lb. My main fishing now is with my daughter Sophie on the River Lea for Carp and Barbel. We have both caught some beautiful river Carp. I love teaching her and watching her grow into a top angler, so most of the time I’m helping her but I sneak the odd nice one out from time to time.

I started fishing when I was 7 years old and began Carp fishing when I was 10. I am now 14 and extremely eager to learn more to improve my all round angling.
I manage to get in at least one session per week but occasionally get out up to 4 times (depending on school). I also enjoy using my social media for posting my captures and rig videos.
