Richard Walker | Biography of an Angling Legend
Barrie Rickards

Richard Walker was one of the most influential anglers in the history of the sport. His biography was long overdue when published in 2007 and it took the research and writing skills of Barrie Rickards to bring it to fruition. The book gives a remarkable overview of Dick’s angling achievements and an in-depth analysis of the person and angler that he was. It also includes a substantial personal perspective from Dick’s widow Pat, giving an insight into him as a family man, and tributes from some of today’s best-known anglers. Whether or not there is ever a successor to Dick in the angling world, this book records for posterity the extraordinary contribution made by this one man in the twentieth century. His is a hard act to follow . . .
