For our meeting this month we have another of the Dartford PAC "old guard" Chris Leibbrandt. Chris was the RO of the Dartford PAC region when I joined back in 1984, Chris was in the first 100 members of the PAC...since then he has gone on to be General Secretary of both the Pike Anglers Club and the Lure Anglers Society. His talk will take us from his early days in the Darenth valley to his fishing today, centered around the River Severn near his new home in Tewkesbury. Along the way Chris has been Marketing Director in charge of Product Development for some of the major tackle companies including Masterline and Ryobi, and will be explaining his involvement in the development of some of the items and lures that we take for granted as pikers today....all in all I think will be a very interesting talk and a bit of a blast from the past for some of the older region members
The meeting will be on Tuesday 3rd November at the Papermakers, with the usual buffet and raffle...7 oclock onwards with an 8pm start for the talk
Members £3.00 / Non members £4.00

Chris, the "Chris Yates" of the piking world


A record turnout for John Watson last month saw 65 eager pikers cram into the Papermakers to listen to John impart his wisdom of pike fishing old and new....
The lads were in a spending mood too, with John selling 25 copies of his new book, plus a couple of leatherbound editions. Bill and Colin also saw brisk trade at the Eddie Turner Specialist Pike tackle stand...a great night all round....the landlord was particually happy, he'd never seen so many people in his pub on a Tuesday night before....
