Author & Angler
As a child, Richard would cycle into the country to fish local streams and ponds. It was on these natural waters that he began to learn the art of angling. Richard quickly realised that practice was not enough, understanding how, why and where to fish is what really made the difference.
It can take a long time to learn to fish well, but Richard has always been happy to share his knowledge. He has written books, writes a blog and makes tutorial films for the Internet. His books and articles are practical, informative and enlightening.
