Bio: .For those of you who don’t know me, here goes: When I was 14-years-old, I fished my first senior match on the river Lea in 1971. It was run by Dave Hemmings and included in the field were great anglers such as Dickie Carr, Ade Scutt, and Dennis Lipscombe. I was fortunate enough to finish 2nd, as much a shock to me and my pal as to the rest of the field. I went on to have a long and successful time, fishing for some of the best match-teams in the south east of England. My most enjoyable times were while fishing for Browns-Barclays, with the likes of Kevin Stack, Mork (hoyeboy) Hoye, Ian Copeland, Tom Legge, Rob Bishop, Stu Redman, the list goes on. As a group of young unknowns, we took the match scene by storm. Rate This 0 0 Having achieved all I had hoped for, in 1994, I turned to my true love, fishing for specimen fish. My main quarry was Big Bream. I have had some remarkable fish, including two over 19lb, a 19lb4oz fish coming on a cold January morning, when the record still stood at 19lb10oz. Interestingly, most of my biggest Bream have been captured during the coldest months. Around 2000, I turned my attention to big Tench, with the Bream never far from my thoughts. Again, I have had some remarkable fish, including several double figure fish. A close friend once said that I would evolve into a Carp angler, and he wasn’t wrong. Increasingly, since 2000, my attention turned more towards Carp. At certain times of the year, my thoughts again return to Bream and Tench, however, I find a good balance between the three. As for my writing, I started seriously around 10 years ago. Aside from my angling blurbs, I also have a novel published... Here is a link There are also extracts from my novel on this blog... Hope you enjoy all SteveD
