Middy UK Angler

Dave Wood


Dave Wood

Dave Wood is a top angler from South Yorkshire and he's the owner of BagUpTV, a popular YouTube channel. He began fishing in 1990 and has accumulated some impressive angling accolades in that time; including becoming the record holder for match weight at Westwood Dam, making the final of the Golden Rod feeder championship, as well as racking up over 3 million views on his YouTube channel. Middy began sending products to him for review in 2021 and Dave liked them a lot. The communication and feedback became so regular that it seemed only natural for this to develop into the full sponsorship deal that he has now signed. Dave still retains his independence on BagUpTV and isn't forced to say anything about a product that he doesn't believe to be true, or promote any products that he doesn't actually use and like. He is delighted to now have this full sponsorship which will help him to keep bringing content to his subscribers - and Middy are equally delighted to have him on board.
