Press Officers

Jan 2012 22lbs 12ozs Pike Thurne System - Hickling BroadMichael Hastings. Caught his first Pike in 1979 and joined PAC in 1981, and a member ever since.  “The places I like to spend my time have to fit three criteria, naturally beautiful waters with interesting fishing and the chance of a whacker.  I’m never happier than when out in my boat on the Norfolk broads.”   Mikes job is to help the committee and make sure the angling public knows what PAC is up to so no one has to ask “What does PAC do…?”
