"I have been fishing since I was 17, initially lure fishing for pike. I have been fortunate to travel and it was when I was in New Zealand that I discovered fly tying and fishing. I love tying flies and focus mainly on saltwater and predator flies.
I have a two person kayak which I often take out on the local rivers in search of pike, chub and perch.
In 2015, I was one of 8 lucky people picked to take part in a BBC tv show called Earths wildest Waters : The Big Fish. A fishing competition along the lines of the bake off, which took us all over the world. I made it to the semi final, but lost a big sturgeon because of a bent hook, and so missed out my spot in the final."
