Mike has been fishing since the age of 6 where he started to fish junior matches in and around Northamptonshire, before joining a larger club with around 50 members.
After a successful 10 years of club fishing he decided to move onto the open circuit, and was fortunate to fish for Fox Match/Got baits for around 4 years. It was during this time, the art of commercial carp fishing for big weights really came into play and still remains at the forefront of most commercial match fishing.
After a successful time with Fox match, Mike was offered the opportunity to fish for Tubertini and fished individually/Team with them for about 2 years, introducing new products into the UK, primarily for the commercial match scene. At that time the team were successful winning three consecutive winter league matches in and round Buckinghamshire.
In 2012 Mike joined the mighty Preston Innovations DELCAC and reached the winter league final every year to date with them. Garbolino are delighted to have Mike join an already very impressive team and look forward to helping him persue his individual career in Match fishing.
