Neil Hall

I'm Neil Hall I'm 32 and from Halesowen in the West Midlands.

It was my grandad who got me into fishing at the age of 7 just float fishing really for anything that came along,mostly bream,roach,perch etc.

In my mid teens myself and some friends started fishing local commercial fisheries for carp,usually around 6 to alb this was good fun on light float gear but its where my carp fishing really started.

My auntie had a static caravan near Bewdley in the Midlands and on site there was a little pool about an acre in size which held a few nice old mirrors mid double to just on 20lb. I had not long passed my driving test at 18 so I spent as much time as I could at this pool some 40 miles away trying to catch these fish and it was that first take from a 13lb mirror that had me hooked.

I've fished many syndicates,club waters and park lakes since then and caught many carp along the way,I have P.B's of both mirror and common to well over 30lb. My fishing is limited to weekends and a lot of the time its a 24hr session every weekend.

I like to adapt my fishing a lot to suit the situation I'm faced with,I love catching carp and always do my best to put one on the bank.

I recommend Whealy Fishy to anyone,hand on heart for me me the baits are a world above the rest.
