OCCUPATION: TA General Manager

Manager of TA and carp catching machine, Scotty K, started his angling journey with a mackerel from a Scottish loch. This progressed to a deeper love for what lay beneath the depths of inland waters too, where he enjoyed float fishing for classic species.

The fishing bug soon turned into a monster and he grew wings, targeting the carp in Farnham Angling Society’s waters. No sooner had he passed his driving test, he was off further afield, fishing the likes of Yateley which almost turned into his second home. Nowadays he loves, like many, the reading area and focuses his attention on Dinton Pastures’ incredible stock of big fish. One thing’s for sure, no carp is safe with Scott around!
