The Russ vs Wuzy Fish Off event started after spending time on the bank bantering over each others fishing ability. One too many glasses of red wine has now resulted in a yearly event to raise money for charities that we are passionate about. We are not entirely sure how it has snowballed into this but it's been full of laughs along the way.
It seems incredible to me and I'm in total denial about the situation but it seems that I've been angling now for some forty one years!!!. Obviously my initial years were the simplistic fishing that youth brings to so many children, stickle backs and perch from the 'forbidden' estate lake near our den building activities in the local area that quickly progressed to mild mannered competition between friends and the inevitable fights over ounces when it mattered and some how over the ensuing decades "oh my god DECADES!!" life has seen fit to assume that it would seem appropriate for angling to still be the best way for me to spend my free time.
Having fished for a number of decades, Mark Wozencroft has a passion for carp fishing having started out as a pleasure and match angler. A four-on, four-off full-time job allows him plenty of bank time, often through the week as well as weekends which suits his fishing perfectly. Mark has fished many lakes from busy day-tickets to low stocked pits and was once the holder of the Welsh record carp.
These days Mark focusses much of his time on the sought-after Farriers lake ran by The Carp Society where he frequently puts big carp on the bank. He’s a very technically-minded angler who has the ability to read a situation, change things for the better and really work a swim to its full potential.
Our next event will be raising money for the MS Society.
The MS Society is a charitable organisation that funds research and support for those affected by multiple sclerosis. The Society is run by a community of people living with MS, researchers, fundraisers, campaigners and volunteers. They are working hard to support everybody who sufferers with MS and to find proper treatment.
