Fish O’ win­ner Andy has the right at­ti­tude

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

I AM a pas­sion­ate match an­gler, but I think this area of the sport lacks charisma and char­ac­ter.

I have watched the Fish O’Ma­nia fi­nal for sev­eral years and, while the skill and class of the com­peti­tors can never be doubted, most of the pre­vi­ous win­ners pre­sented in quite a dull man­ner.

But that changed this year when Andy May took the tro­phy. It would be very easy of him to be dis­mis­sive of Keith Arthur and his team when he was wired up to a mi­cro­phone and in­ter­viewed mid-match, but Andy got in­volved in the ban­ter, was very witty and even put a smile on my wife’s face – and she has no in­ter­est in fish­ing! An­gling needs more peo­ple with that kind of jovial at­ti­tude.

Well done on an amaz­ing win Andy, it was a well-de­served vic­tory.

Andy May – great an­gler and a top bloke.
