Rob’s Mailbag
Jake Watson Charity Event
Inspired by
Tiger Bay
Hi Rob,
My name is Neil Chapman and a digger driver from Birkenhead. I have
been doing charity events for the last
five years since my own son Alfie was
born with a heart defect and also
wheelchair bound. Along the way I
have raised in the region of £30,000
for Alderhey Children’s Hospital,
Claire House Children’s Hospice and
a number of other personal charities.
On the 27th of April I did a charity
fishing event for the Jake Watson
Jake, a young Everton fan, was just
14 years old when he suddenly
passed away following a severe
asthma attack. The Event took place
at ex Everton player Tony Hibberts
Lac De Premier.
Consequently, I am mow on target
to meet and pass my target of £7000.
Head bailiff Nick Lee and his wife
Kele made sure everything at the lake
ran perfectly for event.
I would like to say a special thank
you to Carp & Cat for providing transport to and from this event, also Parkfield Angling Centre for providing
tackle, Old Kiln Angling, Monster Particle and so many more for prize
donations. Pictured here is myself
with a Lac De Premier resident of 63lb
10oz together with Tony, Nick and
Kele and also our charity event picture and Jake Watson.
Hi Rob.
After seeing you at Brentwood on Saturday and explaining to my ten-year-old
son who you were and what you’ve
done over the last four or five decades,
he was absolutely blown away. But the
thing that has really made me smile is
that he has started reading Tiger Bay.
He went and got it from the bookcase
when we got home and has been reading it every night before bed. Honestly,
Rob, the fact that you’ve got my boy to
actually pick up a book and read about
fishing instead of watching it on
YouTube has really made me happy!
Hopefully he will be an angler for life
now, and I will always have someone to
carry my kit!
Matthew Gore.
P.S. Look at this. My boy has moved
onto your “Advanced Terminal Rigs”
book – truly inspiring the next generation.
