Ever since the age of 4, Matt has had a passion for angling, from going to watch club matches that his grandad was competing in, to going down the local river targeting roach and chub, slowly working his way into the junior match section of his local fishing club.
Right through his teenage years and into his early 20’s he was a competitive match angler travelling right across the uk fishing highly stocked venues right through to the river Trent and Severn on a regular basis.
Having worked hard on the match scene he felt like he wanted to start targeting bigger fish on bigger venues so his brother invited him for a short day session on a local gravel pit in the midlands and caught the carp buzz. Having only been carp fishing a few short years, he’s taken his time in mastering his craft with his current UK PB sitting at 24lb.
Matt fishes a variety of venues from his small intimate low stock members water broomscross in Liverpool to tackling weedy big gravel pits with big rewards in them.
Looking forward Matt has his targets set for 2021 already with his main goal catch a sort after north west 30 and a southern 40 along with big trips to Europe in between.
