I have been trying to get Dick Walker memorialised in Westminster Abbey since around 1987 I have a tremendous amount of correspondence with Prime Ministers, Home Secretaries, MP’s, Dean of Westminster also Prince Charles and others, The Carp Society helped me with a big petition but I’m still in their fighting. In fact I have just send a letter to my MP asking for some action in this Walker’s Centenary Year. I get very angry when I see Z class actors, actresses, sports people and others getting awards for doing nothing except get huge salaries. As one writer Cliff Hatton said “The crime figures for teenagers must have taken a drop in the 1950’s 60’s through Dick Walker and Bernard Venables MBE for their writing”. It made angling the number 1 sport in those days encouraging so many youngsters to go fishing.

I'm thinking that the most basic way we can celebrate RW's life and works is to go fishing on his birthday, whether individually or together. There will, of course, be no need to lie about the results.
