January 2023 

I’m pleased to introduce myself as the new River Keeper for the Royalty Fishery.

A lifelong angler and almost a lifetime spent in the fish industry, I come to South West Lakes by way of previously working in various areas of the sector including the angling trade, lecturing, fish farming and fishery management.

I have just spent 3 years farming carp at VS Fisheries in West Sussex and prior to that I had 13 years at Sparsholt College in Hampshire, lecturing and tutoring the Level 3 Fishery Management qualification.

I’m excited to be part of somewhere so special to so many and look forward to meeting you on the river at some stage.
