MORE ABOUT KEITH WILLIAMS #TEAMSONIK
I have been fishing since I was a 10-year-old boy, fishing in the county of Essex. Fishing local lakes, canals, rivers and turning to match fishing in my late teens.
This is how I learnt my water craft, which helped me when I gave up match fishing to concentrate mainly on catching carp. I still love days on the river bank, walking along and spotting my quarry. My favourite type of fishing is short, overnight sessions where you can focus on those spots close in.
Concentrating especially in those areas full of snags where you can outwit those big carp. Most of my 40 pounds plus carp have come from close in.
I love fishing in France, particularly lakes that are picturesque and have a little bit of a mystery about them. I am always happy to help anglers on the bank, giving advice about my own personal experiences.
I have caught loads of big carp during my career but still get excited catching carp of all sizes. I love being outside observing the countryside around me but always try to keep a watchful eye on the water. Patience truly is a virtue for the successful angler.
