Meet the Team at Gigantica
The team at Gigantica are here to ensure you have the best possible time on your French Carping Holiday. Not only are they all very experienced carp anglers who can advise and mentor; but they also pride themselves on the levels of customer service they deliver.
Andy Savage (centre of pic) started the position of Operations Manager at Gigantica in November 2016, having left the Armed Forces after 24 years service. An avid angler from a very young age, Andy has over 30 years of carp fishing experience behind him, along with a wealth of knowledge on European carping, having lived and fished on the continent for ten years. He is also a classically trained chef and enjoys nothing more than meeting new people and helping them achieve their angling goals.
James Jones (right of pic) came on board in April 2017. His professional background is deeply rooted in the hospitality and fine dining sector, where he started his career at Claridges under Gordon Ramsey. Angling has always been an integral part of his life and he has carp fished in the UK and Europe for the last 25 years. He is a very amiable character and a real people person, who has proven to be a great hit with visiting anglers since coming to Gigantica.
Steve Bartlett is the latest addition to the team, starting in March 2019. Prior to starting he was a regular visitor to Gigantica and helped out on the work party on numerous occasions. Steve has caught many of the residents in Gigantica already, including the elusive "Northern Scaley" at 80lb when it had been missing for over three years. Steve will go out of his way to ensure you have the possible trip; nothing is too much trouble.
Mike Isted is the unsung hero of the operation, being the first point of contact for anyone booking their trip to Gigantica. Mike runs the booking office in the UK, and keeps everything up to-date and running smoothly. Like the rest of the team he is also a super keen carp angler and is very well versed with what is going on out at the lake. Having worked in the tackle industry for many years, he can advise on equipment, bait, strategy and anything else that you may need to know prior to your trip. Just give him a call on 01268 820440 and see for yourself.
At Gigantica we never rest on our laurels and are always looking at ways to improve the way we operate. All the team look forwards to meeting new and old acquaintances and are focussed on setting the benchmark for other fisheries to emulate. Good Luck and Tight Lines to all…..from Team Gigantica.
