Pete is one of the most-recognisable faces in carp fishing. He's forged a strong career in the angling media and now heads up the marketing effort for renowned rod maker, Free Spirit. He's a versatile angler who is equally at home nicking a bite off the surface as he is stalking or sitting behind three rods.

Although he's based out in Suffolk, this hasn't stopped him taking lots of big carp to over 40lb, including an awesome mirror called The Dragon from a hush-hush water. He's not just a big-carp man though, in fact, he's adept at getting bites from a whole range of waters be they day-ticket, club waters or pressured syndicates.

Pete isn't a blind follower of fashion and often uses rigs that are neglected by others in favour of in-vogue presentations. He's a skilled photographer and filmmaker, and has appeared on many fishing shows on TV.
