John Wilson MBE
Angling legend John Wilson met Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace where he was officially made a Member of the Order of the British Empire in recognition of his outstanding contributions to angling broadcasting and literature.
“It was a proud moment, the culmination of a career lasting 50 years, but I felt that I received the award not just for John Wilson, but for angling as a whole,” said an ecstatic John Wilson MBE.
“My wife and kids were present and it was a perfect family day. I only wish my mum and dad could have been there,” added the 66-year-old.
