Match-Aid Young Anglers


Hello I'm Aidan Williams and started fishing for match-aid just this year in the Junior Angling Trust Nations. I started fishing at the age of six, and got into match fishing at eight years old. My first Junior match was at White Acres, in the Rover Match, during which I went on to win the Junior Section. I currently fish alot of commercials especially my local lakes. I also like to travel to bigger venues which I thoroughly enjoy. Being part of match-aid has really brought me on as angler this year.

I've been fishing since the age of 9 and mainly fish senior matches now. I fish all over the country at places like Makins, Whiteacres all the way to Partridge lakes in Warrington. I can fish a wide range of tactics confidently and have shown this throughout my angling career, this has now paid off as I have secured a sponsorship with Frenzee south west

I started fishing at the age of 6 due to my dad, who got me into it as he fished for a team himself. I fished at places like white acres where after my first trip I knew I was hooked on fishing. I then went on to win and frame in a couple of the junior rovers, I also fished at Meadowview after my dad had finished his matches there. After around four years of fishing I took three years out to carry on with my other hobby rugby league. During these three years I heard about the 2014 3 day festival run by match aid and knew I had to be part of it. I then went on to get involved with the match-aid junior team which has helped me as an angler one hundred percent and hope to still be involved with match-aid going forward as what they have achieved in the time it has been running has not only helped me but many other young anglers also.
