Behind the scenes

James Strain


James is our "Camera Genius". We are very lucky to be friends with this super talented film maker and photographer. James has been a big part of our fundraising from day one. He is the very busy media manager for PB Products and also donates his time to film all of our events. Without James, we couldn't promote our event successfully. 

We would like to say a big thank you to James, we really couldn't do this without you! 

Richie Mellers

Richie has been a big part of Russ vs Wuzy from day one. He was the marshal for the inaugural match and has decided to brave it and do it again this year. Richie has his own bait company RPM Baits and is also the team leader for The Unit Carp Company. Make sure you follow him on social media. 



Michelle is a familiar face in the fishing industry. She works behind the scenes looking after our social media and also ensuring we all know where we are supposed to be! 

Simon Ursell


Simon was our first winner for 2018. He teamed up with Russ and helped secure their first victory. Simon has his own blog where he chronicles his adventures with his son as well as works with Pro Baits UK. This year he has volunteered to help run ththis years event and is going to be a runner and a marshal. 

Matt Rhee


Matt Rhee is joining us again as a runner and marshal. He fished alongside Wuzy in the inaugural event and has been credited for his amazing tea making skills after Wuzy's tutoring. We are very grateful for his support this year.
