Colin Chick - aka Chicky - Administrator
I'm a very keen angler with 30yrs experience covering a wide range over the years. My dad was a charter boat skipper when I was a young lad and this is where my love affair with angling began with most weekends spent on the boat fishing, once I arrived into my mid-teens saw me beach fishing upto three times weekly and helping out on my uncles trawler earning cash to spend on fishing gear. Aged 22 I bought my first boat a little 17ft fast fisher where I spent three years fishing from newport to porthcawl learnt a lot from my dad and uncle about the hazards around the bristol channel so when I purchased my first kayak around ten years ago I never looked back, the boat lasted a year after the kayak arrived before I ditched all other forms of fishing and now if im fishing its on a kayak. I'm predominantly a big fish angler but fishing is fishing, nothing satisfies me more than helping newbies into this wonderful sport, running them through safety procedures and techniques and watching them flourish one of the main reasons I joined south wales kayak anglers.
