Chris is a very well established and successful open circuit angler. To many he is known as 'The Hatman' on account of his love for his big wide brimmed hat which he has had for many years. Chris has a wealth of experience on many different venues from rivers, canals and of course commercial fisheries where he loves to plunder the silvers in winter and the carp in summer. He has an excellent CV with some major achievements under his belt. If he gets a sniff at a win he usually makes the most of it!
Chris is also works at Leeds angling superstore BOBCO Tackle, so if you are ever in need of some advice on Garbolino products or just want to pick his brains on fishing then why not drop in and see him at this incredible store!
