Mark currently holds the British record for the largest Carp caught on the surface at 61lb 4oz and is the only angler to catch three different 50lb Carp in one season in the UK –50lb 4oz, 52lb 4oz and 61lb.

Prior to joining the academy, mark worked as editor of Advanced Carp Fishing Magazine for three and a half years and is still employed as a freelance magazine journalist.

Mark said;
“I am very excited about the prospect of working with an established company like Greys that is looking to actively market its range through all avenues of media.

A strong attraction to the Academy for me is the current members themselves who I have worked with in my role as Editor of Advanced Carp Fishing so I know what an innovative bunch of guy’s they are.”

Greys Carp Academy Manager, Tony Makepeace said;
“It is great to have Mark on board the Academy. In his time as an Editor Mark has reviewed lots of items of tackle and will have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. With his guidance and help he will help us be a driving force in the industry.”
