OCCUPATION: Publishing & Events

Having Kevin Clifford as a father is bound to have a profound effect on anyone, none more so than his daughter, Bev. Having been around the industry all of her life thanks to her dad’s and friend’s publication, Carp-Talk, it took her ten years to finally take up carp fishing. She loves nothing more than being in the great outdoors, but nowadays her personal fishing is rather limited.

Alongside working in the industry, she’s also heavily involved with the Ladies Carp Team England and also runs the Ladies Carp Academy, who organise events for female anglers wanting to improve their carp fishing skills or get started in the sport. To be able to promote and share our passion and hobby to encourage more female anglers onto the bank is very important to her.
