PB was from Yateley’s Car Park lake, “BIG ORANGE”. Size doesn’t matter in my angling, its more about the history and achievement.
I’ve been fishing since I was 7 years old, general course until 1996 when I hit the carp scene. Living so close to Yateley lakes, all I read about and heard stories of were about this magical place so to finally fish it and then catch an original, was a boyhood dream come true. I’m fortunate with my work that I get a good amount of time on the bank and if I’m not fishing I’m normally at a venue doing some sort of work. 2014 has been a good year for me landing 120+ fish including 7 40’s and over 50 30’s. 2015’s challenges see me moving back to the yateley west complex fishing the iconic North lake and also on to the Dinton complex on Black swan (saving white swan for a single lake campaign)
