Rich started out on his carp fishing journey in the northwest before moving south where he fell in love with the gravel-pit fishing that he still enjoys today. After completing a Masters degree in fish ecology, he trained as an angling journalist with DHP and rose to the position of Editor of Advanced Carp Fishing magazine before joining Korda. He now works as a freelance film-maker and journalist both inside and out of the angling industry.

He prefers to target lesser-known fish on quiet waters if possible but he's happy to mix it with the crowds occasionally and is a previous BCAC finalist. He's something of a carp geek and collects carp literature of all types. The floorboards of his study creak under the weight of old magazines and the bookcase is packed with classic carp reading.
