RidgeMonkey are delighted to announce that long time carp angling pioneer Max Cottis has joined RidgeMonkey on a consultancy basis. Max first hit the headlines from the banks of Lac de St Cassien back in 1985 when he became the first English angler to land a 60lb+ carp and has been consistently catching huge fish both home and abroad ever since. Recently inducted into the Carp Talk Hall of Fame, he’s also been at the forefront of carp tackle development for over three decades and brings an enormous amount of experience in all aspects of the recreational angling industry.
About the appointment, Max quoted “During my 35 years in the fishing industry I’ve had the opportunity to join numerous teams and with the exception of Mainline I’ve always chosen to decline these offers. However, when the opportunity to join RidgeMonkey came along, I simply couldn’t turn it down. With my attention to detail and love of product design, the opportunity to work with the other talented RidgeMonkey Pro anglers with the development of their new terminal tackle was just too tempting! The future is very exciting and I’m very pleased to be part of it!”
Ever the gentleman, Max will be a huge asset to the brand as we expand our range in the future. His experience and knowledge of the equipment required by anglers of all abilities will be utilised to ensure that our forthcoming end tackle range is the very best that it can possibly be.
