Geoff Maynard

Born in East London 1950, raised in Essex, now living in front of a screen in Surrey with his wonderful posh wife, his punk daughter, his three boys who are too big to insult, and a doggie called Macs.

As a small child, Geoff caught his first fish on items of tackle 'borrowed' from his cousins and friends. This fired his imagination and set the mould. The passion took a hold and he has continued in the same vein ever since. They are getting seriously cheesed off with him now.

Generally he enjoys any type of angling. Whether it be in freshwater, fly-fishing or sea fishing, he is consistently and equally both inept and lucky, managing to catch several world records over the years - yet always when he was fishing alone and had forgotten his camera.

He spent (or 'wasted' as his mother calls it) the best part of a decade as an itinerant angling hippy; travelling the globe with a guitar and a fishing rod, catching everything from sticklebacks to sailfish and being ejected from musically aware third-world chai-shops. These days, as the bone-fide owner of a swivel, he is often classed as a 'specimen hunter', though this may change if he has to give it back. People still pay him to stop playing guitar.

Wrote his first fishing articles in the 1960s and by the '80s he was actually getting some of them published in various national angling magazines, which just goes to show how much editorial standards have declined over the years. In the mid-'90s he started the first European angling magazine web-site, this has evolved over the years into the existing www.fishing.co.uk. So blame him. Everybody else does!
