specialising on Fishing/Wildlife/Adventure – and travels the world not only to capture fish, but also to enable him
to write passionately about his experiences, and to capture each magic moment on film and in movies.
Regency Press – London & New York – published his first work in a large book of poems called
POETRY TODAY in 1975. At about the same time, Tony began writing about his fishing exploits and was published in a number
of English fishing magazines during the following decades, including: Freeline, Specialist Angler, Carp Fisher, Coarse Angler,
Coarse Fisherman, Improve Your Coarse Fishing, Carpworld, Carp-Talk, and Crafty Carper. During the 1980’s Tony began
using the heading “GLOBETROTTER” in many of his published articles, and today he is sometimes better known in
many countries as “Globetrotter” than by his own name.
During the past 30-years Tony has increased
his travels in search of giant fish, and striven to constantly improve his photographs. Such is his success, that editors
publish his work in books, brochures, catalogues and magazines across the world. Natural Science Photos, and the BBC have
marketed his stunning wildlife and fishing images. He is a regular contributor to magazines in UK, Holland, Belgium, France,
Germany, Czech Republic, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Italy, Spain, USA and numerous sites on the Internet. His first major
book, co-written with Leon Hoogendijk – BIG FISH IN FOREIGN WATERS – (Paisley-Wilde
Publishing Ltd.) was published in 1991, and he has made major contributions to many other books, such as: WORK YOUR WAY AROUND
THE WORLD (Vacation Work, 1986); MODERNE MEDEFISKERI (‘Modern Coarse Fishing’. Skarv Publications, Denmark 1989);
FOR THE LOVE OF CARP ( Carp Society 1989); SPECIMEN MEDE (‘Specimen Hunting’ Forlaget Mosegaard, Denmark, 1999);
and A CENTURY OF CARP FISHING (Carptalk Enterprises 2000).
At the dawn of the millennium, in September
2001, the author caught the largest carp of the major fishing tournament ‘2001 A Fish Odyssey’ in USA, clinching
a winning top prize of $10,000.00!
