Although he's an all-rounder, carp fishing is Garth's first love. He prefers to target his quarry off the beaten track, on quieter waters. Pioneering wild, untapped pits is a particular passion.
Hailing from Derbyshire, Garth made the move south to fish on the historic Horton Church Lake. He was very much in at the deep end but quickly upped his game while rubbing shoulders with some of the cream of the UK's angling talent. Horton was a great learning ground for Garth and his campaign culminated in the capture of the irreplaceable Shoulders at over 40lb. He's since gone on to take further forties, although he'd be the first to admit that size doesn't always matter; it's all about the journey.
His strengths include consistent baiting and relentless enthusiasm as well as an eye for an effective rig.
