About Katie Watkinson
In my early days I started fishing a number of venues in Wales and the Cotswolds steadily improving my angling along the way. I then moved back to London, I spent my time on Park lakes in the city and in Reading. I have also ventured onto the continent fishing a number of French lakes including Echo Pool. I then met my partner James who introduced me the Essex Carp scene. I am now living in Essex and targeting a few local waters that are kept hush hush. I have also made a start on a campaigned in the Lea Valley. By far the biggest and most exciting part of my recent fishing career has been being snapped up by Korda and more recently Mainline.
I have written for the Korda website, and have also had a number of magazine features and covers. As well as being a Trakker representative I'm also a member of Team Korda, recently filming Thinking Tackle with Danny Fairbrass. Being very active on social media means I've also gained a large following to my day-to-day work, social and of course angling life.
