Eddie Chambers, is a registered  psychiatric nurse, living in the small Cornish town of Bodmin, on the edge of the wild landscape of Bodmin Moor. It is the moorland waters where Eddie mostly fishes these days, though in the past he crossed the Tamar to become a very accomplished competition fly fisherman. During the late 1980s and early 1990s, Eddie captained the crack Chew Grenadiers fly fishing team to many successes, including winning the Bronze medal at the international finals of the Benson & Hedges Championship at Grafham Water in 1991. Eddie also achieved second place in the national final of the Troutmasters event at Grafham Water in 2001.

Eddie has won over 50 fly fishing matches, either individually, or with teams. Some of his notable individual successes include: the West Of England Charity Fly Fishing Championships (outright winner 3 times 1987/1989/1991), the Kamasan Loch-Style Championships at Wimbleball in 1991 and the Bristol Reservoirs Fly Fishing Clubs Individual Knockout Championship in 1991 at Chew Valley Lake.

Eddie also loves coarse fishing, and still manages to do a little in Cornwall, as well as an annual pilgrimage to the Hampshire Avon.
