OCCUPATION: Overhead Linesman

Scott Lloyd has a sensational ability to track down his quarry, which is the most important aspect of carp fishing. With almost monkey-like reflexes, he can climb trees and observe carp at close quarters, studying their every move.

The past couple of seasons have seen Scott consistently catch from some of the tricky Linch Hill complex, including the biggest mirrors in the big lake.

Q. As a younger angler who did you admire in the carp angling world and why?
A. Definitely not Jake Wildbore hahaha!!! Seriously though, locally there was a good mate of mine called Paul Coxon who was a legend in my eyes as he was an amazing angler but also had no use of his legs which made him that bit more incredible how he went about it!! However on the scene I’d have to say Mr Hearn!
