Well I've just about come back down to earth after an unbelievable day at Viaduct Fishery for the first Fish 'O' Mania qualifier for 2011.
It was one of those rare days where almost everything went right and the fishing gods were smiling at me as I pole-fished my way to a 252lb win! I caught just 18 big carp to 24lb (my best ever fish!) plus one very lonely skimmer for that weight and I don't think I will ever repeat that feat again.
This will be my third Fisho Final appearance and I'm really looking forward to the big day again. I was third in Fisho 13 and I'm hoping to do better than that this time. I know what to expect now and so I definitely wont be as anxious or stressed out this time. Whatever happens, I'm determined to enjoy the day and have a good time. After all, it's not every day you get to represent Pole Fishing live on Sky Sports!
