Ben Hesketh

Team Trakker

I have been hooked on coarse fishing since being introduced to it by my dad as a kid, and can’t imagine ever losing the love for it. I’m rarely happier than when I’m by a lake, doing my thing! Photography is another passion of mine, and I spend a lot of time messing about at the crossover point of my two hobbies.
I’m not really one for setting myself targets, but I did say I wanted a 30lb common this year… and I got one… so lets go with a 40-pounder for next year! There’s currently three swimming around in the lake that I will be fishing (Keer Lake), so theres every chance!
