Alex Norgate

Team Trakker

Anyone who truly understands the passion for angling knows, only true happiness exists by the waterside. All other time is spent either thinking or dreaming about it. Many may see this as excessive or even obsessive, but for us it goes much deeper than that.

It’s about catching fish obviously, but asides from that very important part, its about being outside immersed in nature truly appreciating it.

These words sum up Alex Norgate’s approach to angling. For him as much as it is about catching fish, it is a chance to reconnect with his surroundings and plumb the depths of the mind. In March 2014 Alex decided to follow his dream, to travel the globe in search of carp and the beautiful places in which they inhabit, living in a converted luton van which he specifically built for his new life. Alex spends his days composing music, taking photos and fishing. Inspired by writers such as Chris Yates, and H.T. Sherringham he takes a keen interest in writing about his experiences found on his blog ‘Carp Watercraft’.
