Team Trakker

Angling has been a life-long obsession of mine, from tormenting sticklebacks as a junior to targeting some of the worlds most pressured carp my enthusiasm remains. Variety is key, I like to mix it up, trying new venues and setting realistic targets. I also like biscuits, big chocolate covered biscuits!
