Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

IT’S great news, for more than just purely angling rea­sons, to see Emma Pick­er­ing back in the Eng­land Ladies squad.

I am de­lighted for her, and the rest of the ladies, be­cause hav­ing lost two of the great­est fe­male match an­glers the world has ever seen in Wendy Locker and San­dra Scot­thorne in the re­cent past, hav­ing Emma back will make a mas­sive dif­fer­ence to the team.

Again, I’m not just think­ing about her ob­vi­ous angling tal­ents but the psychological fil­lip that the famed Pick­er­ing tenac­ity and drive will bring – they are deeply em­bed­ded in her genes from dad Tommy. Come to think of it, you wouldn’t really want to cross swords with Emma’s mum Ann on too many oc­ca­sions ei­ther!

Like fa­ther, like daugh­ter – match leg­ends Tommy and Emma Pick­er­ing.
