I started commercial fishing at the at the age of 16 as crew aboard a local boat handlining and netting whilst studying for NVQ Level 2 in fishing operations which on completion I received the award for the top student of the year. After 6 years as crew aboard several different boats engaging in different fisheries I bought my first boat an 11 metre trawler. Since then I upgraded to a larger trawler before selling it and in 2015 buying the Borlewen for charter fishing in summer months and commercial fishing in the winter months. I feel that my 18 years experience as a commercial fisherman and knowledge of the local grounds is benefical to providing anglers a good day on the water. Since the success of Borlewen I have purchased a 10 metre Cheetah catamaran Borlewen ll for the 2018 season.
I am a fully qualified skipper including all safety certificates
