Jake Taylor

Team Trakker

Jake Taylor has been a mad keen carper since the age of ten, when he hooked his first carp whilst out fishing with his dad on a local lake. Later that year he attended the Tony Parsons Memorial event on the Linear Fisheries complex, where he fished with Roger Seaton and Frank Warwick. It was during this event that Jake caught his first 20lb carp which got him totally hooked on carp fishing.

When he was 12,  Jake attended the first Korda Carp Academy where he was lucky enough to fish with Dave Gawthorn, who certainly knows a thing or two about match fishing, being a former BCAC champion in his own right! Jake then started fishing the British Young Carpers’ Angling championship event (BYCAC) and managed to make the final in every year that he competed in this superb event. Jake told us more: “Each year that I competed in the BYCAC event I learnt more, picked up more tips and massively improved as an angler. With lots of practise I was fortunate enough to be crowned BYCAC champion back in 2010 when I was 16.” Jake continued: “Ever since winning that competition my angling career has just blossomed and I have managed to secure the support of Korda, Baitworks, Cotswold Rods and now Trakker as sponsors.”

Jake’s strongest asset in his fishing approach is his versatility, as he’s equally adept at long range fishing but also loves a bit of ‘up close and personal’ fishing such as stalking and floater fishing.

Although Jake does enjoys his carp match fishing and fishing busy day ticket waters, he also successfully turns his hand to fishing big low-stocked venues up in the Cotswolds.

Currently Jake works full-time as an electrician’s mate. Jake explained more: “I love my job and I appreciate the separation that my work gives me from my fishing. I think it is important to have that separation as it makes you even keener to get back on the bank and focus 100% as you know you have only got a limited time to fish.”
