My name is Luke Sparkes my age is 26 I’ve fished all my life from the age of 6. I’ve done the small bitty fishing and junior matches I then got hooked on carp after I accidentally caught one on a family fishing holiday in Devon and that was 13 years ago, that’s when the carp bug struck.
I occasionally angle for other species as there’s some beautiful fish to be caught but I mainly target carp (proper uns) but I do fish for simmos as me and my team mate fish a lot of carp match’s in spring through to autumn.
I fish twice a week without fail, I absolutely love fishing.
I have a saying…
‘My addiction is fishing, my obsession is carp, my love is for my wife’.
