Andy Little

Fox’s Deputy Chairman Andy Little is a very well respected angler and name is synonymous with specimen fishing. Andy has been regarded as one of the best all round anglers for more years than he cares to remember. He is equally at home delicately trotting a stick float down a stream for roach as he is holding on for dear life with a huge marlin tearing off across the ocean. In recent years Andy has had a huge involvement with the development of the Fox Sport Fishing brand.

Mick Brown

Mick Brown is one of the most well known and certainly one of the most enthusiastic anglers in Great Britain. Over the last twenty years he has become well known for his written work and photography, and in more recent times has become a popular television personality. His influence extends across Europe where he has also featured in the European angling press.

Lifetime member of English Carp Heritage Organsisation. Have represented NFA Carp Team England in Russia 2006 and Serbia 2007. I'm also a qualified angling coach and attend the annual Korda Academy event and enjoy helping the students achieve their graduations. I also write regularly in various angling magazines and often supplement them with my own photographs.

Zyg Gregorek

Zyg is the owner of Anglers Paradise and a world class angler when it comes to game fish. He holds several records. Zyg also formed the 5c's syndicate which raises money for several charities every year. Zyg is very active in supporting the Air Ambulance and local organisations.

Martin Cronin

Martin has been fishing all his life and is a well respected angler. Martin is based in South Wales where he runs a couple of day ticket waters and the Birch Syndicate which is a lake holding some amazing fish. Martin also fished in the 1999 world carp classic and took the prize for the biggest fish and then in 2004 he and his partner took a section win.

Terry Theobald

Terry is a passionate all round angler, who is as happy catching carp on a windswept gravel pit as he is trotting for roach and chub on a chalk stream. Terry has also written a book called  'well and truly hooked' which was published in May 2010 and is a very interesting read.

Julian Cundiff

Julian is the star of The Diary of an Everyday Carp Angler in Crafty Carper and has been on the carp scene more years than many of us care to remember. Julian’s skills have been developed during over 30 years of carp fishing and as well as being an exceptional angler, he is also a successful journalist, author and broadcaster.

Zenia Drury-Gregorek

I have been fishing since forever, with a childhood growing up at Anglers Paradise, it would be wrong not to take up fishing as a hobby, especailly living at such an amazing fishery...I absolutely love fishing of all types Coarse, Sea and Big Game and am proud to say that not only did I catch my first Marlin in Kenya in 2009 but I also managed a Billfish Grandslam. In just 3 hours I caught - a Black Marlin, Striped Marlin and a Sailfish, one of the best days fishing ever!

Wendy Perry

Wendy appeared on the programme called Nick Hancocks fishing School. "I didn't know until i arrived in Scotland that i was to be the only lady, they had chosen only 6 people out of 30,000 and only 1 lady! I loved filming, it was an experience to say the least! I also didn't know the programme was going to be about Fly fishing, i thought it was about coarse fishing!"

Lake Needed

Do you have a lake that is not used? If so we would like to hear from you as we are looking for our own water to lease, so we can make it wheelchair friendly and a safe place for anglers of all ages to use. If you think you can help please drop us a line.

Can you Help

Reels on Wheels needs some financial support from businesses, clubs, organisations and of course you guys. We need your help to keep us going, so if you can help please contact Nick.

ROW Festival

Reels on Wheels started back in 2007 and in 2008 we held our first festival and have one every year since then. If you would like to spend a couple of days fishing and having fun then please check out the festival details HERE

Reels on Wheels

The Home of the Original Buddy System for disabled anglers

:: The primary aim is to help the disabled and those needing assistance to return to fishing. Nationally we will collect and collate names and contact numbers of people needing our help and assistance, and people willing to give that assistance. These will be cross referenced and introduced through the "Buddy" system register.

The secondary aim is to offer advice and guidance in general to fisheries and venues in regards to access and suitability for the disabled angler. Where appropriate we will refer them to an appropriate advisory agency in their area.

The third aim is to (where ever possible) promote angling as a healthy, beneficial pastime for everyone, regardless of experience or ability. This will be done by supporting less privileged groups enabling them to participate in organised events. This will be done by offering to conduct  "Angling for all" seminars and demonstrations to disabled clubs, associations, schools and youth clubs..

We would like to offer anglers with a terminal illness the chance of a day out away from everything so they can enjoy their passion, possibly for the last time.

Being ill myself I know how a day out doing something you love can give you a boost.

If you feel that you can help us by making a donation no matter how big or small then please hit the banner below..

Thanks for your interest and support.

Did you know that if every Adult angler in England and Wales who held a License made a one off donation of £1 to Reels on Wheels we could open a purpose built fishery for all to use with areas for kids, family workshops, cafe, tackle supplies and fully disabled pegs and toilets and then the whole complex would be turned into a Trust. Please help us to make a difference, your donation will be put to good use no matter how big or small. Thank you.
