Bill Chisholm

The Association was sad to hear of the death of its President, Bill Chisholm, who had been suffering from a degenerative illness in recent years. Bill will be sadly missed by all who knew him and for the contribution he made to the club and its predecessor, Biggleswade AC, over many years. In the past, he has both helped the club financially and bought fish for introduction into the club’s waters. As a director of a company offering fishing holiday’s around the world, accompanying fishing celebrities like Chris Tarrant and John Wilson to exotic locations, Bill caught many large fish including catfish weighing well over 100lbs, but his true love was catching roahch from the River Ivel. Our deepest sympathies go his his surviving relatives and friends.’
