About Mike Spug Redfern
Carp fishing headbanger!! Been described as putting the fun back into fishing, love the social, love my mates and hey if we catch one then that's a bonus! Been using Mainline since 1994, with a brief three year gap when I worked for Solar Tackle. Claim to fame was only the 4th British angler to land a 50lb'er home and away, i.e England and France and when i landed two tone at 56.08 in 2001 it was at the time the second biggest carp ever landed and the biggest one on a boilie! Was lucky enough to be brought up in carp fishing by the "old school" and is very pleased about that too! Currently living in Thailand and working for Gillhams fishing resorts near Krabi, where he has caught Siamese carp to 100lb.
