Ever­green Ken is still fish­ing at age of 90

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

I THOUGHT I’d let you know about my fa­ther-in-law Ken Hall, who is 90 this month.

Ken set up and ran Moor­lands Farm Fishery’s kids’ matches and spent many hours help­ing them. He was also a founder mem­ber and is Vice Pres­i­dent of the Star­let Vets, which was set up so that pen­sion­ers could en­joy a day’s fish­ing.

Back in the 1950s and 1960s he won count­less com­pe­ti­tions, and made his own floats which he would give to other an­glers.

He’s also been a vol­un­tary bailiff for the BAA and is the only orig­i­nal mem­ber of Bore­ley An­gling Club, which has had a stretch of the River Sev­ern since he ac­quired it for them well over 40 years ago.

Ken has such a great pas­sion for fish­ing and has al­ways had the pa­tience and time to en­cour­age oth­ers to get in­volved in the sport. Even now he still likes to go fish­ing but spends more time in the gar­den, shar­ing gar­den­ing tips with his friend and for­mer Eng­land match­man Ken Giles.
