Martin Collison

Discipline: Kayak

Martin Collison has been coarse and salt fishing for nearly 25 years since the age of 6, due to his father being a keen angler.

Martin started kayak fishing in 2009 after spending many years as a coarse match angler and specimen angler and also a keen beach angler, but as soon as he hopped into the kayak, this opened so many opportunities for him be it fresh or salt water.

Martin travels all over the UK for competitions and meets and he has made so many new friends and learnt a lot from fellow anglers. Martin doesn’t mind what he catches be it big or small, as it’s all part of the fun and he loves targeting selected species as he enjoys a mixed variety of species be it fresh to salt.

In addition, Martin loves fishing light on the kayak and getting the right presentation on baits and lures. In 2014, he was lucky enough to win 2 major competitions and come 2nd in two, with a few other placings.

As well as being 3rd and 4th in previous years, at the SWKA Oxwich competition in 2014, Martin came 2nd out of 141 kayak anglers.

2014 saw Martin Collison crowned as the most consistent kayak tournament angler of 2014. Martin was also part of the RTM Kayak Fishing UK team for 2014 and he is now part of the pro staff at Jackson Kayak UK Fishing team along with Mark Radcliffe.

Martin has been using TronixPRO tackle for the past couple of years with great success.
