Anthony “Cuddles” James

Anthony ‘Cuddles’ James has been fishing in some shape or form since the age of 10, making the switch to carp fishing roughly 15 years ago. He started fishing the local waters in S. Wales with the likes of White Springs and the Fendrod but nowadays the preference is to head over the bridge and also chase some chunks in France, although theirs no buzz like fishing for your country on the match scene.

Cuddles UK Pb is a modest 32.2lb Common from a still water in Somerset, and a French PB of 43.2 from Crete Lakes. You can often find him at his favourite venue and that has to be the one and only St Johns on the Linear complex but does enjoy fishing all other lakes on the complex. Ether it be fishing for smaller fish on lighter kit or wanging bags out to the horizon on the proper set up, he loves it all!!

Very well supported by CR-Baits and many fish from Oxford along with France are accountable from their range. Anthony has matched fished for the last couple of years and winning the section and the team winning during the last Tri-Cup competition in 2018 that gave him a buzz like no other in his fishing career, which converted him to the more competitive in this side to the hobby!
