Since my return from Sweden after a 13 year stint i have come to see him on some 20 times a year as a ever present organiser of fishing on the Soar valley. Incredibly he holds several posts with the LSAS and i just wonder when he finds time for himself ?
One thing i do know he works tirelessly to balance his clubs needs against the matchman's wishes and he has found a balance that satisfies everyone . He is also a mighty fine angler himself and i believe he has won the Soar Champs on a few occasions but he is also well known to all match anglers for his devotion to sometimes a thankless task for his monumental efforts to keep the name of natural river angling prominent in the county of Leicestershire.
Recently Brian joined my fishing club the Greenhill AC and truly remarkbly he appeared on one of the clubs weed party weekends and started helping ! What a bloke , who else could do that ? He is organising one of the largest clubs in the county (LASAS) and still finds time to help us !? .......That is the magnitude of this man , tireless and always thinking about helping others.
Here is a picture from this year in July when he just turned up and started cutting the weed . Completely unannounced he came , he cut , he enjoyed and he was liked immensely by all on the committee .......people like Brian are Gold dust !
He even taught everyone a trick or two with his fishing skills and took a 1st in section in the 70's to qualify for the Sensas Soar masters final this year.
He even fished a few matches with us at the Greenhill AC as he was warmly received by one and all , he is certainly welcome again next season , his membership for that season has been already payed for !
Brian Hull finishes organising the Winter League this coming Sunday on the 29th November . It is not the end of the man but probably the beginning of him fishing a lot more and enjoying his fishing and socialising more and taking a few pints of the black stuff post match.
If any of you have time then it would be appropriate to drop a few presents and Xmas cards of to Brian at the Draw this coming Sunday. This in recognition of a Legend organiser for the good of natural fishing in Leicestershire and the UK !
Please show the man with the biggest fishing heart in Leicestershire that we care what he has done , it unquestionable , it is with out doubt something very hard for others to follow. What ever your views and thoughts then please praise the man who has given most !
