I'm Gareth, a keen amateur angler who has recently taken up this great sport. A recent holiday with my children showed me how fun and enjoyable the art of catching any fish can be and got me hooked (sorry!).

A quick Amazon search and I found a basic fishing kit for around £90 and thought hey let's give it a go! I spent a good amount of time on YouTube watching the experts explain all the techniques and methods used in Match, Specimen Carp, commercial and all the other types of fishing. I suddenly realised I'd found such a deep and interesting topic.

This website is about what happened next and my progress through the learning process.

Hope you enjoy!
