In his own classy, eloquent and modest way Steve talks through each capture in detail as well as the funny, controversial and untold stories that come along with a lifetime of incredible angling. Steve also give an insight in how he comes to find/hear about big target fish as well as how he has refined his rigs and baiting approach to aid him in capturing so many incredible carp all over the globe over the past 30+ years. Steve is a true carp angling pioneers and one of the most humble, down to earth and nicest of guest we’ve had the pleasure of having on the podcast. His carping pedigree is second to none and the sheer scale of what is discussed in this podcast is mindblowing and will leave you in awe of a man who has dedicated his life and lived his carping dreams yet still has the hunger for more!
