KIAN WARDLE

AGE: 
40

Kian is 'Mr Consistent' which is largely due to his concentration and preparation. He never leaves anything to chance and is ultra prepared even for a little midweek open. Already representing his country he is likely to have a bright future ahead of him in angling. He is at home on any venue for any type of fish.

What Kian has to say: -

"I live in Derby, and love to watch Derby county when I can. I lived in New Zealand when I was younger, and love to go to different venues and fish different methods although I tend to go commercial fishing more these days. Although with the Trent on the up and on my doorstep I intend to get some river matches in this year. Stopped team fishing a couple of years ago due to the lack of matches, but I miss it like mad, loved my time with Kamasan Starlets and all the great team members I have fished with".
