Last week I started my new dream job, as the Marketing Manager for the Angling Trust, the governing body for all angling in England and Wales.
I've spent my whole professional life working in marketing and the media, and I'm a life-long angler, so to combine the two, is an absolute dream come true! Last Friday (14th June), after a successful week, I decided to go and try to catch my first ever barbel.
This is for a chapter for my new book, that will be released at Christmas. Now, I know I really should be catching my first barbel from a river, but I only had 4 hours, so I had to cheat and head over to Sumners Ponds, on their Ribbon Lake.
