Richard Walker, bettwen known the angling world as Dick Walker, is considered to be one of the most influential and well known individuals in the history of the sport of fishing. Today his original recipe for Ledasink, used to reduce the surface tension on monofilament, is an essential buy for any trout-fisher.
Born in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, on 29th May, 1918. Dick started fishing with his grandfather at the age of 4, and in 1952 he attained a world record for carp by catching Clarissa, a 44lb carp that would be unmatched in the UK for 30 years. He was also one of the first to apply scientific thought to angling - his inventions include the electronic bite alarm - and he was instrumental in the development of the carbon-fibre fishing rod.
