Scott carved an early path onto the carp scene whilst angling in and around the historic pits of the Yateley area. A quiet and considered angler, his meticulous and precise approach to all he does has served him well on those notorious, historic and pressured lakes.
With a working background in graphic design, it is no surprise that Scott often notices things others miss, and these small details have often led to the capture of many of the countries most desirable carp. His album is truly phenomenal and a credit to his applied dedication on some very tough venues over the years.
From the River Valley to the Car Park Lake, historic Frensham, to the Reading club waters, Scott is held in high esteem by his peers as a ruthlessly efficient and technical angler and having utmost respect for his quarry and the environment.
Scott has chosen his venues over the years with careful consideration, angling in the most part for old, historic carp, and in particular, the old Leney strain mirrors of the Hampshire borders.
Although generally a quiet sort of angler on the media front, Scott has written highly regarded chapters on various aspects of his angling in the publications Subsurface Journal, Forgotten Chapters and Forces of Nature.
