About Phoebe Stuart

I was born into an angling family, both my Mum and Dad fish so I guess it was inevitable that I would too! I started fishing at the age of 3, sitting on the footplate of my Dad’s match box catching Crucians and Rudd on a couple of sections of pole, and it really grew from there.

I fished more and more, and by the time I was 7 I was spending night’s on the bank with my Dad where he’d let me take ownership of one carp rod, making me choose a bait and a spot to fish to. It was on one of these trips that I landed a 20lb Leather. That was it, I was seriously hooked!

By the time I started senior school, aged 11, I was spending two nights a week on the bank all year round carping. Exams and work load over the last 2 years of school really limited my fishing time, and I had to rethink my fishing style, becoming a short session angler to make the most of the very limited time available. I think this helped my fishing no end as I’m now studying Photography so get to spend 2 or 3 nights a week fishing but still approach these like short sessions being happy to spend as much time finding the fish as I am fishing for them.

Although Carp are my passion I still like to fish for other species and enjoy spending time on rivers fishing for Chub and Barbel as well as fishing for Catfish in early summer or hunting Pike in winter.
