The passing of Barrie Rickards

The PAC committee were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Barrie Rickards and would like to send their condolences to family and friends.

Pike Angling and the Angling world will be a much poorer place and will be forever in his debt.

Colin Goodge, PAC chairman said of Barrie

"Barrie had been a great friend, our friendship went back to the sixties I feel very privileged to have been a friend, his inspiration to me personally and to others through his books and many talks will always live on, to have been chairman of such a great club started by such a great man has truly been an honour, thank you Barrie RIP, a true friend to all Pike Anglers."
