It is with much sadness that I would like to pass on the news, to any that were fortunate enough to have known him, that Fred French MBE has passed away this afternoon. Fred French was our latest patron.

Thank you Fred.

He'll be in the great fishing meeting in the sky, that's for sure. Can't be many who went to more fishing meetings in his life to try and make things better for us all. RIP.

2nd post down gives you an idea of what he did in angling, for which he was awarded an MBE

Very sad news indeed, just reading the emails and saw this.

Never met Fred but communicated many times by email, a sad loss to the sport. Thoughts are with his family and friends
