Vic Gent is a Lincolnshire lad now residing in Norfolk. Taught to fish as a young boy by his father and brother, Vic has never strayed far from the water, spending much of his youth ‘mucking about’ aboard the family boat on the River Nene.
Vic makes his Fallon’s angler debut in Issue 5 with a piece in which he learns the art of patience – entitled Lessons. Previously his angling writing has been published in Waterlog and Anglers Mail, while he has also penned articles for Lincolnshire Life and Practical Fishkeeping.
