Gareth set out on his carp angling journey fishing around the famous meres of the North West scene. It would not only be a steep learning curve, but an intense experience and one that set Gaz on a strong path for his future. Angling on those tough old venues has been a proving ground for many of the country’s most talented anglers over time.

Eventually settling for a life near the south coast with his wife, Gaz now has good access to the many pits of the M4 corridor and beyond. 

Gareth has been around the scene for what seems like forever, and has invested a huge amount of time and energy in a number of well received projects. The book Forgotten Chapters, Subsurface quadrilogy, and subsequent Subsurface Journals makes a heavy involvement in many massive volumes of work. With a meticulous eye for design and a natural artistic talent, it is no surprise he has had continuing involvement with many of today’s carp publications and magazines. With a past role teaching photography and many other commitments, it is surprising Gaz ever found the time to fish!

Yet Gaz has fished many of the continent’s most revered waters, going about his angling with passion, dedication and freedom of expression. Gaz has enjoyed much success, both at home and abroad, angling with the many friends and acquaintances he has made along the way.
