Alistair White

Pro Team - Ali has been on Tails Up for over a decade. He has caught loads of bigguns and has UK PBs both mirror and commons over 45lb. As well as this he is one of only a handful of anglers in the UK to have caught 40lb plus carp from both Wraysbury 1 and Wraysbury 2.

Several years ago I made a conscious change to my fishing, to get away from small and/or crowded waters. I wanted to try my hand at the larger, lower stocked and quieter venues, in some cases hopelessly chasing myths and legends (although I can say that they do exist as I have personally seen a fish of close to 50lb that may never have been caught). This requires a totally different mind-set and mentality to fishing for numbers of fish, you cannot afford to have any doubts in terms of your tactics, tackle or approach. Key to that approach is complete confidence in your bait. I went from fishing a water where 5 fish in a weekend was a good result to finishing second top rod on my new water (a vast, lightly stocked and very difficult pit in the Cotswold Water Park) with 2 fish that season.

Since my first conversation with Ash in 2008 I have used nothing but Tails Up bait, I caught my first 30 that year on OCM (from the above mentioned pit). Since then I have caught my floater PB at 34lb using Floater Oil (still chasing my first surface caught 30) and from a large, tough Colne Valley pit PB mirrors and commons both weighing over 45lb using a custom version of the Red Fish Mix. Since then I have had some memorable results on Wraysbury 1 and Wraysbury 2 on the Pro Marine and now Sea Monsta. In 2020 I decided to venture to France for the first time and caught my first 50 plus from a large public water in the midi Pyrenees - Sea Monsta doing the business abroad as well as at home. 

Confidence in my bait is absolutely critical to my style of angling and Tails Up bait gives me this – I literally feel I could take my bait anywhere and catch. In addition to this, the personalised service is fantastic, the quality and freshness of the finished bait is superb and the range of matching products unrivalled.

I am proud to have been asked by Ash to be a member of the new Pro Team and hope to be able to give something back to the company that has supported me so much over the years.
