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! 

I started using Mainline Baits roughly two years ago and have always favoured Activ-8 as my go to boilie, so much so that I have even used the Polaris Mix and Activ-8 base mix in order to create my own Activ-8 and Black Pepper oil pop up’s. These are 100% my pop up’s of choice, especially when using a multi-rig, and on a trip to France at the beginning of February caught all 3 of my PB mirror’s!


I’ve recently completed my A-Levels at college and am now in full time work so have had to change my fishing style over the last two years in order to fit fishing in around my busy schedule. I have become more of a short session angler to make the most of the very limited time available. I think this has helped my fishing no end as I’m now making the most of my limited time by spending as much time finding the fish as I am actually fishing for them.


Generally I have always been a club lake person as it is all I could afford when going through school, club’s offer loads of different lakes with fishing styles to suit everyone so with my limited time whilst going through education they were perfect for me. However, now I am driving and am getting more free weekends I am aiming to join either a syndicate or a club with a better stock of larger fish for me to target and get a campaign going. Getting a campaign going on a lake again will be brilliant for me as it gives me something to really get stuck into knowing there are certain big fish on my capture list!

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.
