GET­TING TO KNOW IVAN MARKS

Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

WHEN I was in my teens I was in awe of the late, great Ivan Marks. I once went to a Game Fair at Stoneleigh where Ivan was do­ing demon­stra­tions.

I wanted to talk to him, but I was in awe of the man! As the years went on we be­came friends and it was a very spe­cial day when he ap­proached me for in­for­ma­tion on his peg af­ter the draw on a Sev­ern match.

I couldn’t stop smil­ing all the way to my own peg, as I fi­nally felt that I’d ‘ar­rived’ my­self.

Ivan asked my ad­vice and I was on cloud nine!
