My name is Nicholas and I have had a fascination with all things fishy from a very early age; everything from catching sticklebacks with a net at the age of five to match fishing, carp fishing and fly fishing for trout. I received my first Rod and Reel at the age of 7 and have not looked back since.

At the age of 52, I am still amazed about the fish I have caught on the canals around Wolverhampton over recent years, I now live in Plymouth and really love the place.

My goal is to share my passion for angling with others.

I used to play football, and then my wife bought me a fishing rod.
