It's been a sad day for carp fishing and a sad day for me personally after hearing the news
on the ( 24. 7. 2019 ) that the iconic Alan Taylor had passed away
whilst growing up as a teenager in my home town of Halesowen in the West Midlands
I can clearly remember watching many a Clean River Production video which Alan had filmed in search of big carp on another overseas adventure
in those days which was back in the 1990's
I had access to a vast amount of carp fishing videos ( their were no DVD's then )
thanks to my first employer in the angling trade
Alan carp fished in six decades, starting in the 1960`s
he had his own small fishing supplies company called 'Whacker Catcher Products'
and ran some carp syndicates named Ecton Lakes
Alan has fished at many famous lakes in his time such as
* Horton to name but a few
he also pioneered the carp fishing on the now famous Lac Du Der in France
sleep well Alan you'll be greatly missed!
as an added bonus why not enjoy one of my favorite Alan Taylor videos
