IVAN MARKS: Third Ouse Champs Win

Angling Times (UK) - - 50 GREATEST CATCHES -

41

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.
