Born in a Welsh rural town, and had the countryside on my doorstep. My Dad is a keen fisherman, and loved the outdoors. So i fished from an early age, shooting came later, my Mam was not at all keen on guns, although Dad did have a 12bore he was a keener angler than a shot! We had a black Labrador and walked him regularly in the countryside, and Dad shared outdoor knowledge with us. Fishing became and obsession, but shooting came a bit later, winter was rugby time and my brother and played for a local club. However i dislocated my shoulder in 1994, and had to take a few years out of the game. So in early 20's i started shooting properly.
