Angling legend helps out at coaching day

More than 600 aspiring anglers were given a day to remember when the legendary John Wilson lent a hand during a family fun day.

The Go Fishing TV star made a welcome appearance at Little Britain Lake in Cowley, London, and handed out tips and tactical knowledge to enthusiastic youngsters.

Hillingdon Council leader Ray Puddifoot declared the event a resounding success and said: “In an age where our lives are dominated by computers, I hope that the experience will have encouraged our younger residents to take up angling."
