Andy is a passionate and successful angler, who has been fishing all his life for various species, but now he specialises in all things predator!

Andy travels all around the UK and Europe for his predator fishing fix. He can often be found jigging for zander on tidal rivers, ledgering for pike on the Fens, chucking lures on the wild Scottish waters or flicking pike flies on the Irish Lochs.

A lure angler at heart, there is nothing he likes better then casting lures for pike or zander, but he is equally at home deadbaiting for them, or even beach-casting for rays and smooth hounds.

Andy is also an accomplished writer, and has a scientific background in fisheries, currently holding both a Diploma and a BSc Hons Degree in Fisheries Science. Andy works in the fisheries industry and is a regular contributor to various coarse and predator fishing magazines and has a weekly page in Angler’s Mail
Andy also works in a consultancy role for Westin and Baitbox.

Pike are probably Andy’s favourite fish and he has currently caught over 250 twenty pound pike with no fewer than twenty four fish over the magical 30lb mark with a personal best of 37lb 04oz. Zander are also on his hit list and he is currently the only angler in the UK to have caught two 18lb + Zander from different waters and he has also caught the UKs largest brace of zander with fish of 18lbs 6oz and his personal best a massive 19lb 14oz. Andy is also no stranger to big perch having caught numerous fish over 4lbs and has a stunning UK PB of 5lb 1oz.
