Phil Dixon has been a fanatical competition angler since he was 'English Youth Champion' on his first trip to Rutland Water, aged 14 years old.
Phil is a true all-round angler who has won almost every title, including two senior Loch style Nationals As of 2012 Phil was ranked as the top English competition angler and is a regular member of the England World Championship team.
Away from the competitive scene, Phil fishes extensively for Salmon, Sea Trout, Grayling and wild Trout. He is a very professional angling guide, having access to much superb private fishing in England and Wales.
Phil's links with Scierra have enabled him to realise another ambition, to organise a national competition.
Phil says: "Scierra Pairs is a great concept, it allows each pair to fish together. Relaxing fly size and other rules will encourage more people into the sport. As a former junior international, I hope the father & son/daughter discount will attract many young anglers. The support of Scierra means that we can give value to each and every angler, along with a great cash prize fund".
