Leigh started lure fishing six years ago, his brother got him hooked on LRF fishing when he took him out one December evening. He admits he was totally clueless with his brother lending him a rod with a small jig head and the smallest piece of imitation work known the man! Within seconds he was into his first fish and his obsession was born.
Most of his fishing consists of HRF techniques using soft plastic lures with some hard lures thrown in. He fishes from the shore on rock marks, estuaries, harbours, canals and also ventures on a boat when time allows. Most of his fishing centres around catching bass, wrasse and pollock in the summer months, and pike and perch fishing in winter months.
Leigh also runs the Urban Angler Facebook Group, founded to help bring together the urban angling community.
Leigh is the TronixFishing Brand Ambassador for Seaview Tackle, Plymouth (01752 269698).
