Dan hails from a rich heritage of lure angling from his native Zimbawe, his family moved to the UK in 2003. Since then he has built up a solid reputation on the lure scene and been involved in the angling industry for 8 years.
Dan represented England in the 2014 World Artificial Lure & Boat Championships which was held in France, it was an eye opening experience and gave him a taste of international angling.
Shimano/Rapala UK signed Dan up as a Pro Staff consultant last year for his unparalleled product knowledge of lure angling, at home on either boat or bank.
Dan has a huge repertoire of lure techniques which he has utilised through the years for some memorable catches of a wide variety of freshwater predators.
A huge fan and user of Rapala and Shimano products it was a dream come true for this young but highly experienced lure technician.
“Obviously I’m relishing the chance to partner up with my good friend Jan in this prestigious event which has set such a grand stage for the lure angling world”.
“Having the opportunity to represent Shimano/Rapala UK at the WPC is both a privilege and an honour. I’m really excited and can’t wait to get on the water and compete against some of the most elite anglers in Europe and further afield.
“With the huge wealth of diverse cultural expertise on offer in June 2015 at Hellevoetsluis such as this I know that whatever happens I’ll come away from WPC with a wealth of knowledge as well as making many new friendships!”.
