"The Grafter" Danny is what we call an "everyday angler" having a fulltime job, running various businesses and a dad of 2 his angling time is hugely limited. This however doesn't stop our team member regular landing chunks up and down day ticket venues in the south, with the tendency to pick out the bigger fish Danny is an asset to the team and a prime example of how Bank ready can assist the "everyday angler"

"Danny's words" With a hectic family life and juggling my businesses I need every help to maximise my time on the bank, I want my rods on the spots for as long as possible and Bank ready allow me to achieve this with confidence!

Georgie known as the "secret squirrel" is a avid carp angler who dedicates his time to club lakes and syndicates with hand picked target fish. With a full time job Georgie's angling time is limited to quick overnighters and short morning sessions, often arriving during the hours of darkness this doesn't stop our team member from consistently producing results! 

Georgie's words " Like most people my work occupies most of my time so I find myself arriving to the lake well into dark, the last thing I want to be doing is tying rigs in the pitch black! I have the upmost confidence in any pre tied rig I choose from Bank ready's boxes, time and time again they do the business for me!

Mark has been a keen angler for some time now but like a lot of us free time is a rarity especially when running your own landscaping business, however this doesn’t stop Mark banking chunks up and down the A303. Always ensuring maximum effort is applied to finding the right spot and locating the fish before settling down ensure bites are regular wherever he goes!
