Based in the UK, Thom Hunt grew up coarse fishing and quickly progressed to tournaments, where he built up a love of competition and achieved some excellent wins. Throughout his life he has experienced and become competent in a wide variety of styles, from salmon and trout fly fishing and coastal sea fishing for bass, to international big game Marlin angling. This variety of skills and experience led to him presenting an International TV series called ‘Hunting Fish’ and live broadcasting from Croatia on World Fishing Day in 2018.
However, since 2013/14 he has focused almost exclusively on predator lure fishing and in particular, predator competitions. He’s achieved an amazing run of tournament wins and podium finishes, mostly in the UK, and is now thriving on the challenge of competing in Europe from 2020.
