Michael started angling at an early age, mainly match fishing around the Hampshire/Surrey border, taking part in junior matches and even managing to win a couple too. He started carp fishing fifteen years ago and since then it has been his main focus, even though he enjoys the occasional river or pike session.
He has very limited time with only one overnighter a week, so preparation in advance is vital. He's a been a huge fan of Avid end tackle for a couple of years now, with products like Bag Stems, Pin Down Leaders and Quick-Change Bait Screws really helping him in his quick-hit sessions.
Although he's targeted big fish in the past, it's all about getting bites for Michael these days. He just loves getting a bend in the rod.
