Dennis Lemmon, who has died at 89, was the author of a well-respected angling column which ran in the Yorkshire Evening Post for some 30 years.
Angling was his life and he didn’t take it lightly. He was a contributor to the Anglers’ Club in Leeds and was influential on decisions within the wider angling community, never afraid to voice his opinion on the subject, no matter what the consequences. He was also successful at competition level, winning many trophies.
He is survived by his son, Mark, eight grandchildren and a great granddaughter.
