Dick Clegg MBE
Dick Clegg will go down in angling history as the brilliantly successful England team manager who brought world championship success on a massive scale. Dick also enjoyed plenty of individual match fishing success. A few of his biggest wins include the first ever televised fishing match run by the Angling Times, the inaugural UK Championship, the last Embassy sponsored Individual Championship in Ireland, and also the very last Sheffield Haigh & Haigh. This match was fished on the mighty Middle Level drain by over 500 anglers. Dick recorded the competition’s highest ever winning weight of around 81lbs.
