Joe Atkinson is a short session specialist and a huge fan of floater fishing. Having fished a lot of the big-fish circuit waters in Essex, Joe now opts to angle on the quiet lakes. The fish are not as big, but are equally as beautiful.
He is fantastic at reading the situation and adapting his angling to suit. With only evening sessions at his disposal, he picks the waters that suit his fishing time. Situated in Essex, local club lakes suit his angling perfectly and he rarely fails to catch carp.
