Steve Hunt

I am Sales advisor and all things technical at Sportfish Winforton where I have worked for a number of years. Prior to that served my country in the Armed Forces.

I would describe myself as an all round angler, but I am happiest with a fly rod in my hand. I have been lucky to fish a number of destinations over the years; Cuba, Belize, Australia and Norway to name but a few, however I still have one or two destinations on my to-do list these include the Seychelles and Russia.
