For our meeting on Monday, 8 April 2013, I am delighted to let you all know the 88’s will have Eric Edwards joining us for the evening
As many of you will know, Eric is a member of RA31, South Lancs and PAAS who lives in St. Helens, nr Liverpool.
An angler since the age of six, he has specialised in catching specimen coarse fish for the last thirty years.
Notable captures include a record tench, caught in 1983 and a bream of 15 lb 2 oz.
More recently, Eric has had great success with big pike, taking a number of thirty pound plus fish including no less than three over 37 lb in weight with the largest going 41 lb 8 oz, caught in 2001.
Eric's pike fishing ambitions include the capture of a Welsh "thirty" to compliment others from England, Ireland and Scotland. Most of Eric's fishing is done in the North West of England on such waters as the Ribble, upper Severn and Cheshire Meres
He will be telling us about his roll as PAC Angling Development Officer, as a Level 2 Angling Coach
Then about his piking over the last few years
As this is our final meeting of the season, Eric will also be presenting trophies to RA88 ``Angler of the Year' and `Member of the Year'
