It is with great sadness that the club learnt of the passing of Tom Murray on the 17th July 2016. Tom was a life long member of the club and was the current president. Although Tom wasn’t seen along the river in the past few years he was still a keen angler and took part in the Sheelin Classic each year. Tom ran and owned the tackle shop in the town for many years until it was passed under the management of CCs Unlimited. Tom will be sadly missed by the members of the club.
