It is with great sadness that we have to inform both our members and the wider angling community of the passing of Bob Church. Bob was the President of The Tenchfishers for eleven years and was himself an active tench angler along with many other species. He will be remembered primarily for his reservoir trout fishing but he was an all rounder of no mean talent. His writings of tench fishing at Sywell inspired a generation, me included, and The Tenchfishers remain committed to restoring the Sywell fishing back towards it’s former glory. 

The Church family asked for donations towards a boat at Pitsford which helps those with health and mobility issues. The Tenchfishers contributed to this most worthy of causes. You as individuals may also want to get involved, the details are on the image below. 

Thank you for everything you contributed to angling Bob. RIP.
