Matchman banned from his club for being too good

An angler has been kicked out of his club for effectively being too good.

He won half the matches he fished in last season but the club took the decision to ban him for the good of its future.

The Midlands angler had offered to undertake a handicap system but was gutted to be told he was no longer welcome in the association's events. For the full story, see next week’s Angling Times.
