Ian Heaps is a winner. From dominating on the Trent, to running a commercial fishery, everything the diminutive Northener has touched has turned to gold.
His finest moment was in September 1975, when he became World Champion on his England debut on Poland's Bydgoszcz Canal. His 22lb 8oz set a record for what was then a three-hour match.
Ian now runs a fishery and angling coaching school in West Wales, and is as happy as he's ever been. We caught up with him to find out more about his action-packed life in angling.
