About Us

A beautiful 23lb Linear Carp.

"Hi, I’m Andy Ormrod, I've have been angling from the age of seven and I love all aspects of the wonderful world of fishing. I am a member of several angling organisations including specialist Coarse, Game and Specimen Carp Fishing Clubs and Syndicates as well as being qualified by the P.A.A. (Professional Anglers Association) and 1st4sport. In addition to my professional qualifications I am an angling consultant for Aqua Products and Cygnet Tackle and I have written articles for Total Carp magazine."


I want Improve Your Fishing to offer friendly and relaxed coaching to anyone interested in angling. I believe I can offer passionate and professional coarse, pike, catfish and carp fishing lessons to both groups and on a one to one basis.
