Angling Results

Sport Interview – SSgt Matthew Herbert

What inspired you to start the sport?

I first started fishing when I was about 6 years old and pardon the pun but was hooked ever since. It was my uncle that first took me fishing and I still fish with him 35 years later. I first started as a pleasure angler, simple float and feeder fishing and this progressed to Carp Fishing.

Where has this sport taken you within the Military?

During my time in the military, I first started as a Team Member and this progressed to me being the Corp Capt for a number of years and Winning the Inter Corp Carp Championships on 2 occasions. I have represented the Army and competed at the Army Championships. I still fish for the Corp and Army as well as completing Level 1 Angling coach.

What advice would you give someone interested in starting out?

Start out simple, please/course fishing before looking to getting into Carp Fishing. Carp fishing is expensive so first look at attending Corp events and see if it’s the direction you want to take.
