OCCUPATION: Garage Door Fitter

Luke is without doubt one of the most successful big-carp-anglers of his generation. His insatiable drive to catch some of the largest, most sought after carp in the UK has given him the results he strives for. He has a real desire for the older carp, which has given him a photo album many could only dream of.

He is a very forward-thinking angler and will take on a variety of approaches, depending on the venue, time of year, size and stock of the pit. This versatility stands him in good stead to tackle even the hardest of lakes.
