    "It was a real privilege to spend the day being coached, one to one, with John Allerton at the prolific Lindholme Lakes complex.

    My wife had booked it as an early surprise Christmas present for me.

    I first met John some 33 years ago on the river Trent, where as a young lad I plucked up the courage to ask him a couple of questions at the end of the match.

    What struck me was there was no edge to him, far from it, he was very approachable, straight as a die, very reassuring and always has time for you.
    I used to fish competitively all over the country, including Ireland and Denmark, however, I had not fished a match for over 23 years and with an impending work competition on the horizon at lindholme lakes, I needed to try and get my head around commercial fishing.

    Who better to show me the ropes than John Allerton, has anyone got a better record than John, at lindholme?

    In my eyes, John is one of the greatest anglers this country has ever seen, still winning loads of matches, approaching 70 years old, extraordinary.
    We had a lovely day, he answered all my questions, sorted the wheat from the chaff, quickly put me on the right track and we ended up with a terrific net of fish.

    Without a doubt, I would have struggled to get my head round commercial fishing without John’s help.

    I would recommend a coaching session to anyone, irrespective of age and ability, it is a fantastic day."
