Long live Nuddy, a true in­spi­ra­tion!

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

I BUY Angling Times every week, and the lat­est is­sue had my all-time hero on the front. Bob Nudd has been a big name in our sport for so long, and his suc­cess was what in­spired me in the early days of my ca­reer.

Few an­glers en­joy a pro­file out­side the sport but Bob is the ex­cep­tion – sev­eral non-angling friends of mine have heard of him.

To win four World Cham­pi­onship gold medals is an in­cred­i­ble achieve­ment, but that is only part of the story.

I was lucky enough to meet Bob at a show in the late 1990s, and I was a tad ner­vous. They say you should never meet your idols, but what a gent he was, putting aside a few min­utes of his time to help me with a few bits and pieces de­spite be­ing in great de­mand by the rest of the crowd.

It’s great to see Bob still loves our sport and is show­ing us how it should be done. Mal­colm Reynolds, Soli­hull

Bob Nudd – he’s never lost his spark and sets us a great ex­am­ple.
