John “Captain” Cooper 

All Hail Captain John Cooper!

John Cooper has been fishing for the last 35yrs, 1st started at the age of 6. His first bite led to him to his first carp which then led to his carping addiction. Throughout the years on the banks he had began to relish challenges. Which has led him onto the Yately car park syndicate. John “trys” to keep himself active on the bank by fishing overnighters on a local club water in South Wales.

John has been blessed to have a U.K. PB Common of 34.2 and a U.K. PB Mirror of 35.12 with countless fish over the 30lb mark to add to his album. He also has a 52lb Mirror to add to his overseas PB List.

Besides Carp Fishing, John is a very keen Sea Angler to which he hits the beaches of Wales at least once a week and never fails to land some kind of s


John is also involved with some great company’s to help him along his journey of being the new Captain for Carp Team Wales, those being DNA Baits, Castaway PVA & PB Products.

Were very much looking forward to seeing what John can bring to the table as our new Team Captain!
