Number 9: Simon Nickless
It’s 30 years since Simon triumphed in the Matchman of the Year competition
He’s been winning matches for nearly 40 years and has probably won contests on more different British canals than any other angler ever. With Steve Dudley, he took the canal pairs championship crown in 2016 on the Staffordshire & Worcester Canal and was part of the Sensas Black County Division Two winning national team in the same year.
Simon is the epitome of consistency and his ability to extract every fish out of a mediocre peg was perfectly demonstrated in the 2018 pairs final. Those around him were recording under 2 pounds whereas Simon managed double that.
