IVAN MARKS: Third Ouse Champs Win
IVAN Marks was a member of the famous Leicester Likely Lads team from the 1970s, winning countless team and individual honours.
One of the greatest ever catches was made in winning the Great Ouse Championship, for a third time, in 1973. Nearly 1,200 anglers lined the banks of the Relief Channel in Norfolk but Ivan steamrollered all of them, fishing the now almost forgotten art of the feeder and swingtip to set a record weight of 53lb 5oz of bream.
Ivan died in December 2004, but his legendary status lives on.
