From a very early age, I built my education, career and family life around my passion for angling. I have a degree in aquaculture and work as a sales representative in garden equipment and water and pond equipment.

I’ve been living in the Camargue (southern France) for 7 years, which is an ideal place for my favourite fish, the catfish, to grow. I’ve been trying to focus my angling on this species since 1994. Back then, there were just a handful of us poorly equipped anglers in France who were interested in this fish.

I’ve practiced a few forms of fishing but going in search of catfish motivates me most. I prefer to use active techniques such as vertical fishing, spinning and casting. I use light tackle (e.g. Rhino DF Fun Stick) to heighten the thrill.
