The club are saddened to hear of the death of one of our members and fly casting coaches, Peter Roberts, who passed away last Saturday.
Peter was a member for many years and one of our fly casting coaches for the last 8. He was a registered fly casting and river fishing coach, a member of the fly tying guild and a regular fly tying instructor at the local fly tying evenings.
He was an expert on all things water related and was called in by the British Olympic Committee to advise on the water quality and treatment for the 2012 London Olympics. His company installed the aeration system at Whitesheet and handled the upgrade this year for us. He was our our first point of call whenever we needed advice on the water quality at Whitesheet.
Above all, he was a lovely chap. We would like to send our deepest condolences to his friends and family.
