Mick Brown will be heading the line-up of speakers at this year's Pike Anglers Club Convention, we can reveal today.
Widely-acknowleged as one of the best all-round pike anglers of his generation, Mick is a fitting speaker for the club's 30th birthday celebrations.
PAC promotions manager and convention organiser Mike Kelly said: "We're thrilled Mick has agreed to attend and speak at the anniversary convention, which is going to be a big day for the club and for pike fishing.
"It's the icing on the cake for us and another good reason to come to what's already promising to be a very excting event."
Mick said: "It's a great honour to be asked to speak, because it's quite an important occasion.
"I turned 60 just before Christmas, so I guess I'll be able to look back and give a bit of an overview on how pike fishing has changed over the years."
The Convention - Piking 2007 - is being held at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, on Saturday, September 22.
There will be a full day's entertainment in the form of speakers and slide shows, along with a wide assortment of stalls where you can browse the latest tackle and stock up for the coming winter's pike fishing.
It's also a chance to meet up with friends old and new from up and down the country, in the only event of its kind in the UK.
More details on the line-up and other attractions will be announced as they are confirmed. For more information on this and other PAC events, click here.
