Bait-Tech Angler – Wayne Swinscoe

There are few in the country that have the reputation and respect of ‘Swinno’. The Nottingham based electrician has won pretty much everything there is to win on natural waters and rivers. A regular on the Irish and Dutch circuit, and feared wherever he goes. When some of the best in the land call him a true great, you know you are dealing with someone very special. His knowledge and skills span decades of top class performing against the very best in the land. A true great? Definitely!
