Long live Nuddy, a true inspiration!
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.
