About Michael

I am a Qualified Level 2 Angling Coach, 1st4 Sport/ A.D.B. 2010/11, current DBS check and first aid trained.

I started fishing at the age of 4 with my dad, who spent his time teaching me the basics of catching roach, perch and silver bream from my local canal.  From there, as the saying goes, I was hooked.  My dad taught me all he knew, however, my desire to learn more progressed through talking about how to catch fish with school friends, reading the ‘Angling Times’ and quizzing other adults on the bank.   I was a sponge for information and became interested in fishing the occasional match competition.  I fished junior matches, representing my school in national team competitions and moved on to fishing  adult matches.  Throughout this time I have had the privilege of fishing many of our water ways, seeing some lovely parts of England!  I still remain a keen angler and match fish for the same local team throughout the year.  I live locally.

In 1994 I completed my training in Youth Work and have since worked as a full time youth worker for Leicestershire County Council.  I have years of experience of working with all members of our community and I have coached angling to children and young people individually or in groups. Recently, I have changed my career path and have established myself as an independent youth worker and angling coach.
