With our Lure Weekend fast approaching hosted at Anglers Paradise (10th - 12th November) we thought it would be nice for the 2 New Lure Weekend Captains to tell you a little about themselves – and here they are!
**Our 1st New Team Captain is KEVIN COX FROM FOX!**
“Fishing has been a major part of my life ever since I was a little boy catching Roach and Rudd in tiny ponds in Liverpool. I’ve completed the full cycle, pleasure fishing, match fishing and specimen fishing. Stalking Chub and Barbel on small rivers like the Bristol Avon produced many great fish and whittled away many hrs. Now having 2 young children my fishing time is more limited, which is where my Lure fishing has really taken off in recent years. Having a bag of lures and a rod permanently in the back of the van means I can grab a few hrs whenever the opportunity arises. These small opportunities have produced some fantastic fish in the shape of 30lb+ Pike, 3lb+ Perch, 6lb+ Chub and many other memorable captures.
I have had the backing of FOX RAGE for the last few seasons and am delighted to be a team captain for the upcoming fun lure weekend. I hope I can assist my team in catching many memorable captures, see you all soon.”
**Our 2nd New Team Captain is DAVID WATKINS-SMITH FROM QUANTUM!**
“Like most anglers my passion for fishing started at a very young age spending weekends out on large lakes with my uncle targeting largemouth bass in Zimbabwe. I have been lucky enough to fish in some really awesome places around the world like Kenya, Mauritius and New Zealand targeting Sailfish and Shark. My passion for fishing followed me over to the UK in 2006 and for the last four years I have been learning to lure fish for Perch, Pike and Chub with a preference for targeting larger Perch with similar techniques to the ones we used for largemouth bass fishing. I am really looking forward to this weekend at Anglers Paradise where I am sure to carry on my learning experience and hopefully pass on some of the knowledge that I have gained over the years.”
WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMIMG YOU BOTH AND ALSO WELCOMING BACK
