Ian Giddins

ian-giddins-2015Winner of the Larford Festival 2008 & 2013

I've been fishing since I was 5 and now i'm 31, I got into match fishing when I was 11 fishing junior matches at Moorlands Farm fishery in Hartlebury, I held the junior record there for about 18 months with 86lb.

In the summer of 2014 I'm delighted to have joined Garbolino and look forward to the 2015 season with both Garbolino and Bag 'em Matchbaits.

My total focus for 2015 is going to be aimed at the 'Fish 'O' mania' and 'Match This' qualifiers and to replicate 2012 and get back into a big money final.

If you've not tried Bag 'em' Matchbaits Commercial Carp grounbait yet it's a 'must' to try. I put a lot of my success in 2011/2012 down to all the quality baits I've been supplied by Bag 'em' Matchbaits.
