MORE ABOUT ASHLEY MOUNT #TEAMSONIK
From a very early age I became embroiled in the fishing arena as a result of my father owning fishing boats. I soon realised that my passion was catching fish and not killing them so quickly converted to fresh water angling for pleasure.
Now into my 30th year fishing for carp exclusively I am as tenacious as ever and take my fishing seriously whilst enjoying all of the pleasures that life on the bank brings. I’ve fished many of the noted venues around Essex and Kent over the years and am currently plying my trade on the Lily Fisheries venues throughout Essex and Cambridgeshire. I’m known for my detailed preparation and fish almost exclusively alone in the UK, with the addition of a K9 friend this past season, but very much enjoy the company of a group of friends twice yearly in France.
I’ve spent the past 3 seasons in pursuit of an evasive 47lb mirror and finally met up for a cuddle this March having landed 16 fish over 35lb throughout the course of the year. My focus has now moved on to 2 venues in Essex and Cambridge with some stunning big scaly carp in with a 40lb plus common being top of the list, so watch this space.
I’m excited to team up with Sonik having used many of their products over the past 8 years or so including 3 sets of rods with the Gravity X’s being my current weapon of choice. Looking forward to good times ahead.
Tight lines. Ash.
