Dennis Mitchell

It is with regret that we bring you the following news.

Dear Member

I write to advise all members of the Association of the very sad news that Dennis Mitchell has passed away . Dennis was a stalwart member going back many years of both the Dart and Lower Teign Angling Associations and was also chairman of the Dart Fisheries Association, his involvement in the management and support for angling in local rivers went back to the time of South West Water when he was a board member of that organisation long before the days of the Environment Agency.

Dennis was also very involved with the Salmon and Trout Association and even quite recently was concerned about the renaming of this group to the Wildfish Association. Dennis was a life member of the Dart Angling Association and attended committee meetings until a couple of years ago, apart from as his vast fisheries knowledge which we all always hugely valued and admired he was a dear friend and we will miss him greatly.
