Club loses long serving member

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of dedicated Inverness Angling Club member Derek Proctor. A recent winner of the Corrie Horne Trophy for catching the first salmon of the season, he had been a member of the club for over 40 years.

Derek served as a biomedical scientist in haematology for 40 years until retiring early due to ill health. He was a popular angler on the River Ness where he tended to favour the Weir Pool and the Mill Stream, and caught his fair share of salmon and grilse.

Derek passed way on Wednesday (October 6) at the age of 67. He will be sorely missed by his fellow anglers who pass on their deepest sympathies to his family — partner Myra, daughter Karen, son Richard, brother Raymond and seven grand children.
