He is a local lad and I feel sure that you will benefit from his expertise.
I've included his details at the end of this week's report so if you feel you could do with his help, give him a call.
On to the fishing, and yet again there was a late change of ponds at Saltfleetby.
With ice on the main lake, it was decided to change to the island pond in order to be fair to all anglers.
There was an excellent turnout and most pegs were taken, but the fish were mainly on one side of the pond.
Lloyd Lakin, who is in brilliant form at the moment, was fishing from peg 19 and got the carp feeding very quickly.
A switch from sweetcorn to soft pellet did the trick and he finished up with 46.13lb.
Next in was Mark Critcher – he was near Lloyd on peg 17 and finished up with 32.2lb.
Jack Holmes was third from peg 24 with 31.2lb.
I am not sure which pond it will be on this weekend – a lot depends on the weather.
It is best to book in and ask which pond will be used for the match.
On to Wold View, Claxby, and Jamie Whitely, who has benefited from some coaching from the area's top anglers, showcased some of his new-found skills.
He came out on top in last Sunday's match with 24lb off peg 18 on the gold pond.
Using the bomb to good effect and altering his baits, he managed to find a few decent carp.
Second in was Neil Spence off peg 26 with 18lb followed by Graham Garrod with 12lb.
Chris Mack decided not to fish the match and instead went on the Ultimate lake with Karl Cropper and they had a fantastic day.
Chris had 140lb of mainly carp with Karl netting 80lb.
On the Saturday, the match was on Silver, and it was Brigg's rising star Ryan Lidgard, inset, who showed everyone the way.
He had 37.4lb from peg 18 followed by Tim Chapman on peg 32 with had 37.2lb.
It would have been more for Tim but he lost a big carp which just snapped his hook length.
Tom Braithwaite was third with 29lb off peg 24.
Gainsborough's Simon Drayton drew peg 21 on the Islands lake for the Friday Open.
He managed to tempt enough decent-sized carp away from the reed beds to record an easy win – his 85lbs was a very good winter weight.
Second-placed Nick Houghton also found that the fish in his peg were tightly shoaled up close to an overhanging bush.
But, accurate casting to this feature produced nine carp for 47lbs.
Keith Easton scored another creditable win in the Silverfish series at the weekend.
Keith even had the luxury of not having to break the ice prior to fishing as his peg was one of the few on the lake that were not frozen over.
Making the most of his good fortune, Keith hauled in 24lbs of quality skimmers.
