Our European expert who's plenty knowledgeable with the uses of quality baits, ingredients and fish habits. Had this to say.
I'm as passionate about my fishing now as I was over 30 years ago catching roach on my local river and sand pit.
I pride myself on being very adaptable to the environment I'm fishing, be it a intimate local lake or a vast European reservoir of many thousands of acres, changing methods to suit.
For me everything has to be perfect to give me the+ confidence to sit behind the rods for hours in pursuit of my targets. So joining a bait company that's growing and shares the ethos as myself, using the finest ingredients and shared vision was an easy choice.
UK or abroad so long as I have water that I can fish I'm happy. Angled since I was very young and pride myself on accurate baiting, casting and not resting until I have my spots rocking. I've fished many waters across the UK and have ventured as far afield as the St Lawrence river, Canada and love nothing more than spending quality time on the bank with good friends or taking my young son fishing with me.
Since using the incredible range of baits in the AD stable I'm absolutely convinced its helped me land carp where other baits simply wouldn't have, so joining the promotion team was a complete no brainer. Having a young family and limited bank time I need 100% confidence in the bait I'm using, AD do this, now I simply concentrate on finding them,feeding them and enjoying my bank time.
I've been fishing since 7 yrs old but full on carping for nearly 30 yrs now fished all around the country and many places in France .
I love the challenge of big waters, low stock & finding all the bits and pieces then putting them together. Its not all about catching big fish though, its being out there and meeting great like minded people on the way .
I fish my way, love to experiment with rigs and bait even when I get told It wont work on here that lights my fire to prove them wrong, and on most times its worked for me, also helping others if I get asked questions. I am more than happy to help and take advice of others too.
Tight lines and be lucky
Since the age of 4 I've had a fishing rod in my hand going with my Dad to his local syndicate, him teaching me the ropes of water craft, fish care and attention the detail over rigs and bait. With this and despite my young age the passion grew and I was soon working my way up in fish size to landing my 1st 30 at only 7 years of age.
I enjoy fishing an array of waters from syndicates, commercials and pits abroad, I feel visiting many different waters not only improves you as an angler but optimizes the need of a quality bait. Using all of the range available from AD has not only shown me how good it truly is, but also many people I've met along the way too.
Joining a company moving forward and with these baits they have on offer was a simple choice.
Mr consistent who's been with us since day one and has helped push the AD brand at every opportunity. Matt a specialist in small intimate waters and cut his teeth on the famous Horton complex many moons ago so he's no stranger to handling large carp. Being an aquatics manager he's extremely knowledgeable with fish dietary requirements and helps us get the most out of our range and brings fresh ideas to us regularly. An invaluable cog to the AD team.
Yateley born and bred I'm fortunate to have some of the best lakes in the UK at my disposal but of course with that comes plenty of angling pressure. Having a young family, limited time, and many other anglers to compete with its vital I use a complete bait I have 100% confidence in using. AD do that, and have done so for the many years I have used it. I always looked for a bait that had an element of natural feed to it so to use a bait that incorporates maggot or worm harvesting all the amino's and digests it's no surprise these baits simply out fish many others on the market today. Add to that the other outstanding baits included in the range it's no surprise AD is going from strength to strength.
All the best
Stoke man Carl, Well traveled and hugely experienced with pb's to make your eyes water. Carl manages to spend at least a couple of nights per week on one of his syndicates and a few weeks per year overseas in search of huge carp. He runs a couple of trips to Chrystal waters in which he bailiffs so is well accustomed and experienced with quality bait and it's importance to land the quarry we so dearly search. Carl's input to some of our range has been invaluable and also to raise the AD profile.
Promotions due Dave and Lorena
Global travelers that love spending time on the bank in search of quality angling. These two are vastly experienced anglers and have spent countless hrs on the road travelling the European highways in search of pockets of paradise and on many occasions have found them.
Too have these guys on the promotions team is an honor, the experience they bring, fresh concepts and ideas has helped the AD brand reach a very wide field of like minded anglers.
Been fishing since 10 yrs of age and after hooking his 1st carp he's not looked back. Living in Essex Gary has access to many waters and has just secured a ticket to a very special water so watch this space!! Having fished Belgium and France he's very versatile and pushes the use of your eyes and ears being the best part of the carp anglers armory.
Having used baits from our range for many years it's great to have Gary on board to raise the AD profile further.
To have Andrew as part of our promotions team is a real coupe for all involved at AD. Vastly knowledgeable, huge interest and experience with ingredients and liquids Andrew loves pushing the boundary's with baits and testing to the empth degree.
With 30 years experience behind him his input has and will continue to be a massive edge for us in years to come. Of course with that he has more huge fish in his CV to make many envious.
All rounder Mr Faulkner, 48 years young and specializes in many species.
Started life fishing the river Lea and steadily progressed to Carp and Catfish, not to mention a very capable angler when it comes to huge Pike and Perch.
With Catfish to 70lb, Carp to near 40, Tench pushing double figures Matt will have a great impact pushing the boundary with what we can achieve with our range. And will no doubt have many great ideas to improve everyone's catch rate, to have an experienced all rounder on the team is a real coupe for any company.
