I was an NCTJ Qualified Journalist and carp mag editor once upon a time and I guess I just couldn't ever put down the pen. I'm a self-confessed plastic pusher, writing for titles all over Europe whenever I get the chance. I love keeping the pen sharp and get great satisfaction from reliving stories and explaining theories in the weeklies and monthlies. I'm proud to have been a regular monthly contributor in CARPology for the last few years and to have written in brilliant pan-European titles like Monkey Climber and Karper. I hope to never stop writing about carp fishing. It's what I love doing the most.
