John Currie – PAC General Secretary

John Currie – PAC General Secretary

As secretary of the PAC, John has achieved much for pike anglers, and anglers in general, by holding the Environment Agency to account, and on his local patch, the Broads Authority. His lead in these matters has been second to none and this heavy pressure has eventually brought about a ground change in attitudes by the authorities to anglers that will benefit angling for years to come.
