In this exciting new series we're profiling major historical figures in the angling world. We'll tell you about the real life heroes who have devoted time, energy and sometimes their entire lives to fisheries conservation and the development of angling.
From promoting and protecting threatened species of fish to enabling anglers to travel to new waters, forming alliances and even working with the War Committee, these all time angling greats helped create the fishing landscape that we take for granted today.
Voting has now closed for angling heroes. We will be announcing the result soon. Watch this space!
