About Dan Sissons

Dan Sissons has been fishing since the late 80s. Growing up by the sea in his home town of Portsmouth, Dan was introduced to sea fishing by his father, Bob Sissons. As an active, junior member of Southsea Sea Angling Club, Dan developed his angling career from both boat and shore. It was at SSAC that Dan and Adam Kirby first met and consequently fished and competed together. Life long friendships were forged. Skip to more recent times, Dan, Adam and third SSAC member, Pete Baker are proud owners of 'Drifter', a Raider 18, fast fisher boat and continue to fish the surrounding area, out of Langstone Harbour. Most recently, Dan has become smitten with modern lure fishing techniques and has an ethos to maximise the enjoyment from all species - big and small. While predominantly still a saltwater angler, Dan's fascination with lure angling has seen his skills transition over to the freshwater competition scene, culminating in second place in the grand final of the 2015 British Lure Angling Championships, fished by 60 of the country's best lure anglers. Dan has also won the coveted Species Hunt section of the Cornish Lure Festival. Along with Adam, Dan is a contributor to the UK's largest sea angling publication, Sea Angler.
