I have been fishing all my life, mainly concentrating on river fishing, however in my early 20s, I found myself taking part in Loch style competitions up and down the UK, especially around Welsh reservoirs. I have been fortunate to earn 3 Welsh International Loch Style Caps and 1 Commonwealth cap in Canada so far.
As a school teacher, I consider myself so lucky that I am able to pass on a passion of mine in Fishing to the next generation of anglers and am always looking to support youth development in angling.
I am Captain for my home angling team of Y Gwyniad and still compete in many different competitions of various formats.
I could not be prouder than to lead my country as Captain in only my second Commonwealth Championship. And I'm looking forward to the camaraderie that comes with competing in this amazing competition and the challenges that come along with it. The format of the championship is challenging, can be difficult and yet so much fun! I once dreamed of representing my country, now I'm living that dream.
Best of luck to all competitors and teams, and may the best team win.
