Thanks to Stephen Harper

Thanks to Stephen Harper for a great talk at last night's meeting. A good turn-out heard Stephen's thoughts on the Broads, boat fishing and little gems like the best time to go pike fishing, and how shallow you can catch 'em.

Next meeting, Wednesday, February 27. Speaker TBA. Make the most of the next few weeks - we might just see the best fishing of the season between now and the meeting.

Stephen Harper talk at next Lynn PAC meeting

This month's meeting sees another special guest who rarely gives talks head to the Wm Burt to give us a night's entertainment.

It's none other than Stephen Harper - author, publisher and chronicler of Broadland Pike. Stephen's one of those unassuming figures who's really stamped his mark on the sport both in Norfolk and further afield.

There are many who regard Broadland Pike and its sequel as one of the most inspiring books they've ever read, as it assembles the stories behind some of the biggest pike ever to come from the Broads and the rivers that connect them in their captors' own words.

But there's much more to Stephen than an angling sleuth, with an impressive series of captures topped off with his own Broadland thirty.

It's bound to be an inspiring night - whether you fish the Broads or are thinking of doing so, or just enjoy an evening spent in pike-minded company.

It's at the Wm Burt Club, West Winch, on Wednesday, January 30 (7.30pm).  All welcome, whether you're a PAC member of not.
