With immense sadness, the club have been informed of the death of Steve Griffiths, the river keeper at Winkton.
He had helped anglers from all over the country catch their dream fish, so many of us were the beneficiaries of his knowledge and kindness.
As we hear news of funeral arrangements we will let you know.
He was telling me a few weeks ago he had now fully retired and was looking forward to spending more time at Winkton. I can’t take it in at the moment.” Brian Stocker, CAC Vice Chaiman
