MORE ABOUT MARK WILLIAMS #TEAMSONIK
I got introduced to fishing by a friend of mine on holiday. We sat on the rocks all week with a little telescopic rod that couldn’t of cost more then €6. Since that week my love for all things fishing has grown my life has changed massively to the point that I now own my own company in the industry.
I’m in my 30’s with 2 beautiful daughters a day job and also run my own business so spare time is something that is extremely limited to me so I have to do my up most to maximise the short time have on the bank.
I love everything about fishing, the highs, the lows and everything in between. If I had to summarise why I go fishing it would have to be the solitude the bank provides and the anticipation of waiting for that magical moment you hear them alarms roar. Anybody who knows me knows I like to keep my angling as simple as possible, I’m not one to follow trends with rigs but at the same time I won’t hesitate to try something new to help me put the big girls over my net cord. With an engineering background I love playing around with rigs and finding new and simple ways to perfect the effectiveness of my angling.
