Hi, my name is James. I love fishing a lot as you can tell I have no clue what I would be doing if fishing wasn't a thing. I don't know why -but fishing is just very special to me. I think because I can go somewhere set my gear up and relax whether that's coarse or fly fishing I can just forget about everything and fish. I have made a video on YouTube in which I collaborated with Sportfish and fished Haywood's Farm Lake whilst being filmed.

I love fishing for all different types of fish and using different methods. I love pike a lot - they are my favourite fish. I caught my first one in the Summer of 2018 on the Savage Gear fruck and in early Summer of 2019 caught my biggest ever pike and first one on the fly!

I am currently in the England Youth Fly Fishing team. this year I have received a sponsorship from Graiglwyd Springs Fishery and am representing them in the Troutmasters final in July.
