MORE ABOUT TOM WRIGHT #TEAMSONIK
Angling is not only ‘in’ my blood, it ‘is’ my blood, it is the fuel that drives me.
From that very first moment that I picked up a rod, fishing has been a major aspect of my life, providing a deeply inspirational driving force that fires my soul. For me, angling is a journey without a final destination. It’s neither a sport nor pastime, for me, it’s a lifelong quest.
Being on the bank amidst nature, I truly become a part of nature itself; it surrounds me and resides within me. Every aspect of carp angling from planning and preparing for a trip, to arriving on the bank, provides me with its own inspiration and ‘being there’ sees to the rest.
I love nothing more than big water carping, and taking on all of the challenges that these inland seas offer. I always work hard, very hard, for any rewards that may or may not come my way, enjoying every moment of my time on the bank, come rain or shine. The tougher the challenge, the more rewarding those fleeting moments of success become and I never shirk what needs to be done to achieve results.
I have designed and developed angling products successfully for many years, which perhaps displays my ethos as a thinking angler and my penchant for producing suitably robust solutions to the various conundrums. Likewise, when I am on the bank, I expect my kit to withstand the rigours of the many extreme challenges; as my angling buddies will testify, I insist on durability, and if an item is to hold a permanent place in my kit, it has to survive the ultimate challenge that I put every item of tackle through! “make it or break it” should be my strapline, ask them!
