Phil Ackerley, aka Dr. Phil

'fishing tips from the wise'

Has fished since he was 12 years old when his father used to take him to Leicester canal where the great Ivan Marks would fish for roach on hemp.

Phil's addiction to fishing has taken him to 29th out of 180 in the Whiteacres Dynamite BAITS festival, represented Stockholm SFK in Plovdiv, Bulgaria at the 2003 World Club Championships and has endless experience in local, national and inter national fishing.  After working abroad, Phil has recently returned to his roots in Leicestershire and has launched Midlands Angling Supplies, an online fishing tackle store bringing equipment from across Europe.
