Gaz Fareham 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 countries 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. 

Gaz Fareham 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, and the Subsurface trilogy, makes a heavy involvement in four 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 role teaching photography and many other commitments, it is surprising Gaz ever gets time to fish. 

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