My name is Matt Jones and as the title of this site says, I herald from Cornwall and I am passionate about angling. I started fishing as a toddler 30 years ago, either out in Falmouth Bay or off any number of local beaches or rock marks with my father. I'm now based in Stratford Upon Avon and regularly stalk the banks of the Avon, Leam or Grand Union Canal.
My focus these days is on modern lure fishing, whether it be for bass, pollack or some of the less celebrated predatory species' that inhabit the UK's coastline and inland waterways. Everyone needs a happy place and this place is mine. As I enjoy both writing and fishing so much, it made sense to combine the two and as a result this site was born back in the spring of 2011.
