I live in the Midlands not far from Draycote, England. I've been very lucky to have 1 European cap,   3 Commonwealth caps and 10 International caps. I am still learning and recently seen trying to tie my own flies. 

I like to spread the word about fly fishing as it is such a wonderful sport that enables me to see parts of the world I have only dreamt of, and along the way  make some great friends.

I have been fishing since 2013 and in that time I have gained one England cap and this will be my second Commonwealth Championships.  I live in North Wales and regularly fish the Cieriog and Dee rivers as well as the many lakes, still waters and resevoirs in the north west.


Since the last Commonwealth in Canada, I have taken on a farm and introduced a number of friends to fly fishing.  I have also been lucky to travel and compete with my team mates and am looking forward to representing England once again at the Commonwealths in Northern Ireland.

I started Fishing in 2013 and it has rapidly taken over my life. I live in Hampshire with my husband and have one grown up son. I am lucky to be able to fish some very idyllic Rivers & still waters. I work for NATS the UK Air Traffic Control Company, as a full time Bid Manager.

The past 2 years have been very exciting, last year I gained my first England Cap in Ireland and got the team Gold. I also became a Grandmother for the first time and am looking forward to the day I can take my Grandson Fishing.

I love helping and encouraging newcomers of all ages to the sport as it’s a great Buzz. I am really looking forward to fishing in this my second Commonwealth Championships and meeting up with some familiar faces and making lots of new friends.

She won her first England cap as part of the 2017 loch-style team that won Gold on Lough Melvin, Ireland and is really looking forward returning to Northern Ireland and to take part in her first Commonwealth championships."

I work for Orvis as an Account Manager and Sporting Co-ordinator. In 2015 I got properly 'hooked' on fishing and cut my teeth on our Test & Itchen beats.

Now I am constantly looking for new places to fish and experience as I feel I will never stop learning when it comes to fishing!
