Father & Son team - Mike & Joe Delves


Mike and Joe started fishing in 2008 at local Lancashire commercial fisheries such and Blundell’s, Partridge Lakes and Moss Side Farm. As they grew in experience as did the venues they frequent with this year seeing them fresh being back from a summer campaign at Sale Water Park. Their recent UK PB’s were caught at Blundell’s Fishery in Bolton which featured in the Angling Mail and Sky TV on Tight lines using ISLA Signature baits.

When not dreaming of being on the bank fishing Mike runs a video games company in Media City UK and Joe is in his last year of school. Mike and Joe are members of the regions angling associations such as: Salford Friendly Anglers, Swinton Anglers and Sale Water Park.
They may be a father and son team but the rivalry between them is legendary and by the looks of it Mike might have the edge so far:-

Joe’s PB: 22.4lb Leather Carp
Favourite Rig: Snowman rig
Pet Hate: Dad snoring in the bivvy.
Mike’s PB : 25lb Common Carp
Favourite Rig: Chod rig
