Pro Angler Profile - Martin Collision
Martin Collison has been passionate about fishing since the age of 6 and was lured into kayak fishing about 10 years ago and has relished the opportunities this has offered him in both fresh and salt water fishing.
Over recent years Martin has enjoyed great success at UK competitions and meets with regular podium finishes and big events. Like many though Martin loves being on the water and takes no greater pleasure in targeting selected species and making the catch – this is where his Raymarine Axiom unit comes into its own.
2014 was a big year for Martin getting consistent placing as big events which saw him crowned the most consistent kayak tournament angler in 2014. Martin was also part of the RTM Kayak Fishing UK team for 2014 and from 2014 became part of the pro staff Jackson Kayak UK Fishing team along with Mark Radcliffe.
Martin has been using Raymarine equipment since 2014 with great success.
Pro Angler Profile - Mark Radcliffe
Mark has enjoyed fishing for over 30 years with the last 10 or more being kayak fishing.
Mark started his fishing in the Humber and despite travelling all over the world his Humber memories as some of his fondest. Over the last 10 years, Mark has become one of the most recognisable faces on the kayak fishing scene and is a frequent fixture on the podium at tournaments around the U.K. particularly in the species hunting events common on the South Coast. Following his success Mark was selected to be part of the Jackson Kayaks European Fishing Team and he and his team mates enjoy regular success.
Mark continues to enjoy success on the water particularly in the Species hunt series which is a passion of his. Regularly catching over 50 salt water species in a year he takes no greater pleasure in catching small wrasse, gobies and blennies on the appropriate gear. With trips taking him to Norway, Sweden and beyond his list of catches continues to be the envy of most.
For Mark kayak fishing opens up vast areas of unexplored water, both fresh and at sea. Being able to paddle along the bottom of cliffs that you know no one has ever fished is an exceptional feeling and the closeness you get to your quarry when sitting just a few inches above the water is unequalled in any other area of fishing he has experienced. Raymarine Axiom with the 3D sonor as further enhanced both the experience and his success and each time on the water Mark discovers new ways to test the kit to use the kit to its limits.
