Barrie's Morris Minor van and his 'tiger stripe' camo hat make it mid 70s I reckon Colin. :pipe:

Would that be his rucksack that I bought from you some years back Colin, when you were selling some of his gear off for his widow ?

Smashing photo, I had a few Moggies in my time, (reference to the Morris Minor not the cat) travellers and vans, and I still have my canvass rod roll up :red: .

Ahoy there Captain.

There's a man who I really miss.

A real angling visionary, benefactor and activist.

A few months before his passing, I’d made arrangements with Barrie to visit him with a view to producing an article for a classic car magazine about his famous Morris minor van, which he still owned.
Actually, it was more of an excuse on my part to have a good old natter about pike fishing.
I believe he’d purchased the iconic vehicle from new and indeed, as a ‘J’ registration,It can only have been a few months old when it featured in ‘Fishing for Big Pike’ which was published in 1971.
Sadly , he fell I’ll and I missed my chance to meet the great man, and his van.
I wonder where it is now?

The Reynolds brothers.

I am still in touch with Richard on a regular basis as he is still involved with a fishery next to my club's lakes.

Both of us miss Hugh. Hugh and I worked together most days on the Club lakes mostly having a great laugh and enjoying a huge bonfire.
You can't beat a good bonfire was on of Hugh's favourite sayings.

The last time I saw it, it was in Mandy's garage along with his boat and trailer. Her loft could be full of his fishing tackle but I doubt she has got around to moving it from Barrie's study/tackle room. All Martin Gay's tackle is in her loft.
All the tackle was going to a Angling mseum in Cheshire (Ellesmere Port) I think that fell through, lack of money.

Possibly John I'anson another great character. The Burbot expert :clown: :clown: :clown:

A real joker who never ever let you down with jokes all day long and insane practical jokes.

It is Colin. An Austin 6cwt van.... B.M.C badge engineering at its best. Basically, a Morris minor van with an Austin emblem on the bonnet and horn button, and a wavy grill.
I dug out Barrie’s letter to me regarding viewing the van , which I rather fittingly use as a bookmark in my copy of ‘Fishing for big pike revisited’
Perhaps one day, in better times, I might still get to see it.
In the early 70s as a young teenager, I was a regular passenger in the back of a Moggie van on pike fishing trips to gravel pits in the West London area.
An old fellah( he was probably about 40) used to take me and a mate- all we had to do was provide the livebaits.
My mate was older than me so,he got to sit in the front , whilst I piled in the load bay with all the gear, and a bucket of roach between my knees. Great times.

You're not kidding Tony. He somehow managed to persuade me to take over from him as PAC Chairman! :eek:

(I think that was his 'Rickards revenge' for me suggesting he took on the role in the first place . . . . :laughs: ).
