Very sad news to post today that Clive Dunkling a longtime member and former vicechairman has died after a short illness.

Clive ran the clubs pier and beach matches for many years and being an excellent angler won many a competition.

Clive was a really nice guy and I fished with him many times also with Broadstairs Vikings and Ramsgate Beachcasters back in the 80's. I particularly remember him catching a double figure Bass in a competition in Ramsgate, the only double I have ever seen
.
In more recent years Clive boat fished competitively and at a national championships a few year back won a top of the range boat and outboard worth 14k.

RIP- my condolences to his family.

Clive was always recognisable by his woolly hat and long hair and was a very skilled and confident angler. He also had a great knowledge of where to find most baits when others could not. He was an unassuming and friendly chap who was ready to have a chat about angling and bait collecting at any time. His passing is a great loss to the angling community of Kent and my condolences go to his family.
