Phil Spinks - Team AD Press Release

Phil Spinks will be a familiar, friendly face to many of you in the Angling Direct community, both from his work in our Beccles store, and from his entertaining, engaging, and informative blogs and videos, which centre around his own angling exploits on the specialist scene.

We're pleased to announce that you'll be seeing even more of Phil in the future, as he increases his involvement with our media streams, from our blog page, to our ADTV YouTube channel, and also gets hands on with our dynamic range of Advanta tackle, as he will also soon be assisting with product development for this increasingly prominent brand.

Phil has been an avid angler since the age of four when his Dad first took him down to the banks of the River Wensum. He spent the first years of his angling career catching minnows and small silver fish, all the time developing his skills and growing his passion. It wasn’t long before he discovered the lure of carp fishing and in the mid nineties he caught his first 20lb carp – Phil was hooked for life.

Phil is based in Suffolk, but his passion for a wide variety of specialist fishing takes him up and down the country exploring new challenges. Although he will occasionally spend a night in a bivvy waiting for his bite alarm to scream into life while chasing big carp, he now spends much more time specialist fishing. This can vary from chasing big tench in the spring time to lure fishing for monster perch in the winter. With an incredible list of personal bests of all species, his knowledge will bring invaluable information to the process of crafting the very best tackle, bait, and accessories as we take the Advanta brand forward.

Here at Angling Direct, we're looking forward to hearing more from this engaging, experienced angler, and we're hoping you'll tune in to ADTV, and follow our blog, where you'll hear more from Phil, and get a glimpse at everything that enthuses and excites us about the wider angling world. And, of course, we're really looking forward to hearing what Phil has to say about developing our ownAdvanta brand even further. Watch this space as Phil Spinks finds his feet with his increased involvement and higher Angling Direct profile.
