This week on the podcast we have top carp angler, media guru and former TV star Pete Castle.
Pete has been a carp angler for decades and he talks about his favourite chapters in his own angling around the UK over the years including fishing venues such as St Ives as well as many iconic venues around Norfolk and Suffolk. He talks about his style of angling and his opinions on rigs and bait and where he feels his strengths are.
Pete has an incredible mind, and he shares how his insomnia coupled with his constantly idea filled brain have led him to develop and create amazing innovative products over the years, a lot of which he hasn’t received the credit for. He is incredibly gifted and a constant source of information which goes a long way into explaining how he can have such great results in his angling fishing short concentrated sessions as well as fishing longer session on big European waters.
On the theme of Europe Pete talks about his foreign fishing including recent personal bests from Parco Del Brenta and his guided trips on the venue. He also shares his unique stance in not having any sponsors and his choice to concentrate on craving his own path and helping other anglers with his film and photography weekend courses.
Finally, Pete talks about his amazing experience working in the industry for the likes of Korda, Free Spirit and Dynamite to name but a few. He talks about his TV career featuring on Matt Hayes Total Fishing and him winning “Kingfishers” a series which is still available to view to this very day.
Pete is incredibly unique, down to earth and talented. This podcast jumps everywhere and is so varied it a real testament into how Pete has followed his passion and talent and forged his own path in the industry, a truly fascinating bloke.
