OCCUPATION: Self-employed

Luke Vallory takes effort and passion to a whole new level. Having a full-time job doesn’t deter him from carp fishing, sometimes 4 nights a week in-between work.

His drive and desire has seen him shine in the past few seasons, catching lots of lovely, old big carp.

Being a very versatile angler sees him occasionally drift away from his target venue to some of the busy day ticket lakes. While doing this, he remains Mr Consistent, and has caught some big fish from lakes such as the Quarry and Christchurch.
