Bob Nudd (born September 1944 in Chelmsford)[1] is the first English angler to win four individual World Freshwater Angling Championships; in 1990, 1991, 1994, and 1999.[2]

About[edit]

Nudd represented the England team at the 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 a 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.[2] He was awarded an MBE for services to fishing.

Nudd lives in Cambridgeshire, England, and writes monthly for Coarse Fishing Answers and 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. Nudd presented a new TV series for Discovery Shed in March 2009.

He features in a Masters of Angling DVD, offering professional techniques in angling. His DVDs include Commercial carp tactics, Paste on the pole, Surface fishing with controller floats, Pole secrets and Expert fishing on the Pole.
