Kevin's Day pays tribute to a legend

Anglers are being given the chance to meet some of the sport’s biggest names at a special event to celebrate the life of Kevin Green.

The former editor of Angling Times’ sister title, Improve Your Coarse Fishing, and TV presenter sadly passed away last year at the age of 40.

One of Kevin’s passions was to help other anglers and this will be reflected at the memorial day taking place at Lemington Lakes in the Cotswolds on Thursday, August 14.

High profile stars such as Terry Hearn, Jan Porter, Alan Blair, Bob Roberts, Mick Brown, Julian Chidgey and Bryan Jarrett will be fishing and demonstrating their rigs and top tips for a variety of species including carp and tench.

Event organiser and close friend of Kevin, Brian Skoyles, said: “Kevin made many friends in the angling trade due to his enthusiasm and professionalism, so when the idea of a memorial day was discussed the response was awesome.”

The result is one of the best gatherings of top class anglers and coaches fishing together that the country has ever seen.

“Kevin’s Day is not a match or a trade show selling gear… it is expert anglers and coaches sharing their passion for the sport that Kevin loved,” added Brian.

“It’s a great chance for people to meet many of his friends, watching them fish or just chatting to them. Visitors will also be able to watch demonstrations up close, and any newcomers to the sport will be able to benefit from some expert coaching.

 “It promises to be a very special day. Whether you are an experienced angler or just starting out in the sport, get together with your mates or come as a family and help make Kevin’s Day something we all remember – a celebration of a very special person.”
Entry costs £10 per car and gates open at 9am.
