Mark Dolben – My Way crew
Mark has been fishing all his life, cutting his teeth on the local lakes and rivers. Mark used to work in the popular local Carp fishery Llyn-Y-Gors, were he honed in his skills and some great match results.
Naturally being Anglesey born and bred, sea fishing was also a must, spending many hours on the shore and afloat, learning to adapt his course fishing skills to the sea.
Marks catches aboard My Way have been plentiful, with his first tope being 48lbs
Last year after many double figure hounds, finally breaking the 20lb threshold.
Mark became a regular aboard My Way over the years and as a friend and skilled angler soon offered his help to novices, finding himself in the role as crew very soon.
A helpful and knowledge asset to the boat, Mark also makes a cracking pea & ham soup too, ideal on cold days afloat.
Harry Owen – My Way crew
Fishing since he can remember, Harry has been a regular crew member aboard his dads boat.
Harry has been a keen angler from a very early age, having been dragged out to ‘help’ by Gethyn on numerous occasions. Learning from these experiences and also his membership of ABC-SAC, nowadays Harry is regularly found on the deck helping those onboard with the many aspects of angling, from bait preparation, rigs and the ultimate goal of catching bigger, better and more fish.
In 2011, Harry qualified for the 2012 Welsh Boat Angling Squad. With no junior squad in Wales, Harry made it as the youngest ever member of the senior team.
Seen less frequent aboard My Way these days, Harry has embarked on a career in engineering, and in his 2nd year of his apprenticeship.
His main sport these days is powerlifting. Harry is a determined sportsman, who has already claimed 2 welsh under 19 records with further success guaranteed, given the hours and dedication involved.
