About Jamie Hughes
With 5 years experience as a professional angling coach, I have developed a good understanding in how to include as much information as possible into a coaching session.
I have fished at the highest level in UK match fishing for the past 10 years, competing in events such as Fishomania, Match This and the UK Champs. Fishing full time has helped me develop my own fishing greatly, allowing me to understand how the little changes I make during each competition, make a big difference and keep me ahead of the field.
My biggest achievement to date is becoming the 2013 and 2015 Fishomania Champion. Chasing these big money matches has become an obsession with each season’s goal being to try and qualify.
Throughout my career I have been involved with several companies but have now settled with MAP and Bag'em Baits, both of which I am a consultant for. Both of these companies produce what I believe are the best products available to the modern commercial match angler.
