Tony Whieldon has been fishing since boyhood. He grew up in an area of trout streams and country estate lakes, so it is hardly surprising that he was bitten by the fishing bug so early. His favourite pursuits include fly fishing for trout, float fishing for roach and tench and trying to outwit grey mullet. Over the years, he has produced a wealth of illustrations for fishing magazines and books as well as privately commissioned paintings.
