Why I Go Angling!

An inspirational film revealing my love and passion for all things angling.

Angling is a way of life!

- James Armstrong

Angling is my passion, my job, my life. I have been hooked on fishing ever since my father took me when I was a youngster. Having caught small silver species, my passion, in fact obsession, grew. I moved onto bigger specimens and eventually turned into an out and out specimen hunter. These days, quite frankly, I like targeting the biggest fish that swim – with perch and carp being my favourite of coarse species.


Jimmy began his angling on the river Ouse with his father fishing for roach. His passion grew quickly and soon developed a love for big-fish across the globe!
