Team: Drennan Banbury Gunsmiths
Highest match weight: 394lb Rolfs Lake (5 hour match)
Most memorable matches: 26lb at Radley on the Angling Times. I had 20lb of roach and 6lb of chub. I won my section, but was only fourth overall! An awesome part of the river Thames.
I had 24lb of a squatt roach on the Kennet and Avon canal at Crofton. I had 367 fish, run out of squatt with an hour to go and therefore loose fed pinkies and the fish got even bigger and quicker.....
Sponsors: Vespe/ Colmic
Angling Influences: Neil Richards help me a lot in my younger days, when I fished for Swindon Talisman, now Colmic Talisman. When I joined Drennan Oxford aged 23, Mick Denton helped me immensely, especially in the way of thinking to approach a venue. Drennan Oxford continue their success, with a good bunch of lads.
Pole used: Drennan Zircon for my silver fish pole and have a prototype Colmic Airon 44 that I am testing at the moment.
