About Me

My name is Kevin Durman, I have been an angler for 40 years. I live in Ashford, Kent, the garden of England. As a youngster I spent so much time in the local tackle shop that they offered me a job, an anglers dream, working with fishing tackle all day long and meeting all the top local anglers. As the type of angler that wants to learn, their knowledge and skills rubbed off on me and my own angling ability improved. At the age of 20 i joined the Royal Navy where i served in the Submarine service, whilst in the forces I represented the Navy in a number of match fishing competitions.


Through my youth I spent all my time fishing for Carp in the summer and Pike in the winter, but a change in career with the Royal Navy meant less time for specimen angling so I started match fishing. On leaving the forces I continued with match fishing and fished at a much higher level entering national competitions and represented a number of the top match fishing sides in the south east.


For the past ten years my attentions have returned to specimen angling. I spend a lot of my winter fishing for Pike and have caught them to over 30lb. For the rest of the spring summer and autumn my attentions turn to Carp, Tench, Bream and Eels. I do also keep my hand in at match fishing and have twice in recent years been a finalist in the Garbolino club angler of the year competition.

I am now in a position to offer my skills as an angling coach. I am an Angling Trust level 2 licensed coach. With my varied angling background I am happy taking an angler for his or her first trip to give them an introduction to angling or it may be that you are already an angler and wish to improve your range of skills to a more advanced level. I offer a range of options to suit you.

My courses are always “about you” and I aim to give you exactly the tuition required.
