Jim Shelley joins Sticky

One of the most high-profile big-carp catchers of recent years, Jim Shelley, has joined Sticky as a consultant.

Sticky's marketing and media man, Adam Snowden, commented: “Jim is well known as one of the most prolific big-carp catchers around. His record for catching truly huge carp has been second to none over the last few years. Having spoken to Jim at length it is clear to see how dedicated he is to what he does and we at Sticky are delighted to have him on board. Jim will be heavily involved with the promotional side of things, but he is also keen to take an active role in bait development. With an extensive knowledge of bait Jim is a welcome addition to our already established team of bait buffs and he understands what big carp require from a bait. Everyone at Sticky is looking forward to a long and prosperous future working with Jim.”

Speaking about his new position, Jim said: “Anyone with their ear to the ground can't have failed to notice what an impact Sticky are having on the carp scene at the moment. Their innovative products have been tearing some very difficult waters apart. I'm really excited about the future!”

Jim had an incredible result the very first time he used bait from the Sticky range, bagging a 46lb-plus mirror known as The Dink from a notoriously hard, 100-acre-plus southern pit, literally within a few hours of casting out. This was a fish Jim had been after for some time.
