Put your feet up Dick!

Angling Times (UK) - - SOUTH -

DICK Clegg has been an in­cred­i­ble am­bas­sador for our sport, and I wish him well in his re­tire­ment.

His achieve­ments were sim­ply mind-blow­ing. When­ever he led a team in a ma­jor in­ter­na­tional it was al­most guar­an­teed that medals would be brought back to home soil, usu­ally gold ones!

Dick brought the best out of peo­ple, mak­ing them gel as a unit to pro­duce win­ning re­sults.

He made Eng­land a win­ning na­tion, and his in­flu­ence is still rub­bing off, judg­ing by our con­tin­u­ing suc­cesses.

So sit back and en­joy re­tire­ment, Dick. You can re­lax safe in the knowl­edge that you are a leg­end. Colin Simp­son, Eve­sham well over 80lb of small carp.

Next trip I vis­ited a fish­ery I had never set eyes on be­fore. The paths were well cut, pegs were well spaced and there were toi­lets that were clean. There was also plenty of wildlife with swans, moorhens and even a king­fisher that flashed by reg­u­larly.

I only caught three or four fish but I en­joyed my day out 10 times more than on the some­what messy fish­ery.

There re­ally is so much more to angling than just catch­ing fish. Dave Mitchell, Grimsby
