Scott Davidson, the PAC's Scottish liaison officer, is on the mend after undergoing heart surgery.
Goodwill messages came from all over after word got out Scott was unwell.
In a response posted on the PAC forum this weekend, Scott said: "I've got to say thanks to all the well wishers who've contacted me through various methods.
"The concern expressed by many of my pike angling friends has been outstanding and way beyond what I could ever have expected.
"It has certainly cheered me up no end as well as reminding me how many top blokes there are in this game."
