ROB WRIGHT

AGE: 
30

Originally from London Rob now lives in the fens and spends a lot of his winter on the rivers and drains around that area plundering the huge stocks of roach. He loves punch fishing in winter but is just as at home on a commercial catching 200lb's of carp on the pole or long distance feeder fishing in Ireland for big roach and hybrids. Rob enjoys team fishing with his Hot Rods team and has has some great success with them as well as lots of individual glory too.Probably one of the best young all-rounders in the country and he gets better every year!

Rob certainly has a bright future ahead of him in match fishing.
