Honiton sea anglers are mourning the death of their long standing chairman, Dennis Retter.
Dennis, who was from Offwell, sadly passed away at his home after a short illness. He was 69.
Club secretary Mike Spiller said: “Dennis had helped so many sea anglers from all over the South West with his tuition. He had managed the England casting team for many years and had been in the team on numerous occasions. Club members have been devastated by the news of his death.”
In the past, Dennis had also taken on the role of Angling Trust Wyvern Region chairman for a number of years and was a life member of the Angling Trust.
