OCCUPATION: Marketing and media manager for Sticky Baits

Dan Wildbore began as a match angler, and as he got older, he began to fish for carp exclusively. He grew up fishing with his brother Jake, and they targeted a few of the busy day ticket lakes around Oxfordshire.

Linear Fisheries and Horseshoe Lake were the favoured places, and Dan caught some lovely fish too. Since then, he has fished a number of syndicate and day ticket waters, often choosing to fish the well-stocked lakes to suit the limited time he has.
