    Hi everyone I'm Chris.

    I'm originally from West Yorkshire and I grew up match fishing in the North of England. My favourite venue is the River Calder in the Mirfield area. I'm still a member of the local club and I fish the odd open match when I'm back for a few weeks in the summer.

    I've lived and worked in Dubai for the last 10 years so most of my fishing is now from the shore. I primarily live or deadbait targetting kingfish, queenfish, cobia and rays.

    Unfortunately for my bank balance I also caught the topwater bug many years ago after catching my first GT up in Mussandam.

    I'm looking forward to learning from the Forum and contributing where I can.

    May can be a very good month up there, the fish will probably still be about in June but the heat and the humidity will be challenging to say the least !
