Angling Heritage Journal

ANGLING HERITAGE (UK)

 

Commemorative Journal

 

The long-awaited Journal for Angling Heritage has been completed and is currently with the printers and these will be sent to existing members and to contributors.

 

As you know, Angling Heritage (UK) was founded on the 9th February 2009 in Fred J Taylor's memory and on the 9th February 2019, not only was it was our 10th Anniversary, it was also the Centenary of Fred J's birth.  This one-off journal commemorates both events with Part I being dedicated to memories of Fred J, Part II features our past Patron, Fred Buller, MBE and Part III focuses on fishing memories written by contributors to the Journal.  Also included is an update on the Angling Heritage archive and what has been achieved so far.

 

Regarding membership of the Trust, supporters will know that membership is renewable annually but all members were allowed open access to the website whilst the Journal was being compiled.  At a recent meeting of the Trustees, it was agreed that the following changes will come into effect on the 5th April, 2019.

 

As stated, membership is renewable annually and the fee is being reduced from £35 to £30 per annum.  The Commemorative Journal will no longer be included in the membership fee; for new members, it will be available to purchase at a cost of £20 per copy (one per member).  Another change agreed by the Trustees is that the Angling Heritage badge is no longer part of the membership fee and will be discontinued for the foreseeable future.

 

The anticipated date for despatch of the Journal is the end of March 2019 and if you have changed your address since becoming a member, please ensure that we have your current details.

 

Thank you for your patience.  We trust that you have enjoyed the content of the website, www.anglingheritage.org and that you will continue to support the work that we do in preserving angling history by renewing your membership to access the archive the very latest news.

A Passion for Angling
Hugh Miles, the legendary film maker who produced the famous television series "A Passion for Angling" in 1993, a series about the ethos of angling which has never been surpassed. Hugh has donated all six eisodes of the acetate films in their containers. These were the final films sent to the BBC for publishing.  What a treasure for the archive - a landmark series in television film making about fishing.

Hugh also added a DVD of "Caught in Time", a film he made with Chris Yates.

We are really grateful

John Wilson RIP
We were greatly saddened to hear of the death of angling legend John Wilson. He contributed so much to the sport bringing it to mainstream television with his "Go Fishing" shows which inspired a generation.  He also granted permission for Angling Heritage to use his films in the video archive. The list below shows what a great all-rounf fisherman he was. Talking to Stu McKay in Canada, where John had been filmed catching channel catfish, he said John was su[erb when there was a hitch in filming, he just dropped straight ack in from the start as if nothing had happened, he was a professional.
