I was born in 1983 and I have lived in the town of Newquay, Cornwall, all my life. I started coarse fishing around the age of eight before getting into fly fishing at the age of 11. Sea fishing came into my life in the mid ’90s, when my family and I moved into a house overlooking Fistral Beach.
I didn’t fish much from 2000 to ’09 but in 2010, I started to get serious about sea angling again. After learning to drive, I began exploring the shores of Cornwall and quickly became fascinated with the beautiful places and species of fish that I came across.
I started writing about my fishing in 2015 in a blog called ‘dogfishdiary‘. I then moved on to doing some bits and pieces for magazines a couple of years afterwards. A newfound interest in photography followed and this has become the thing I enjoy most about creating sea angling media.
I set up this site in 2019, originally to make my stories that had appeared in defunct publications available to read again. But as I put more and more time into it, the site grew into its own animal and I found that I enjoyed being responsible for every aspect of how my creations appear online. I now publish nearly everything I write here.
