Firstly I wanted somewhere I could log down my angling activities. More as a memory jog for things such as what baits worked and what time of the year and so on. I’m also a designer and web programmer by trade so secondly took the chance to build something from scratch to showcase my professional skills. The initial site lasted a couple of years but as technology progressed and finding a new passion in photography I thought it was time for The Bite v2.
The foundations stayed the same but the website moved to an open source platform – WordPress. I designed and built a theme to showcase my photography along-side my posts.
July 2015 see’s the new revolution of The Bite. Again all key building blocks are the same but it was time for a re-fresh. Not just in design and technology but also blogging style. We are now lucky to have lots of great angling blogs out there and most are write a lot better then I do so a change is due. My writing style is going to adapt and become shorter and more to the point. The new version of the site will also include a better review section where I will showcase the products, services, venues and anything else angling related.Find out more
