About[edit]

Nudd represented the England team at international level for more than 24 years, during which time he became arguably the best known angler in the world. The highlight of his professional career was victory in front of a home crowd at Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham, in 1994. In 1991 he received the most votes ever in the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Award but was denied victory by the BBC, who ruled that a campaign to vote for him in the weekly fishing newspaper Angling Times was against competition rules.[1] He has an MBE for services to fishing.

Bob lives in Cambridgeshire, England, and writes monthly for Improve Your Coarse Fishing magazine. He is still known as one of Britain's greatest anglers along with John Wilson, Dave Harrel and Richard Walker. Bob started presenting a new TV series for Discovery Shed in March 2009

Bob Nudd Features in a 'Masters of angling' in HD (High Definition) DVD, offering professional techniques in angling. His DVD's include 'Commercial carp tactics, paste on the pole', 'Surface fishing with controller floats' and 'Pole secrets. Expert Fishing on the Pole'. His proud grin also enlightens the cover of all the DVDs of this outstanding collection.
