A name a lot of older (and maybe some younger) anglers hold in high regard. Browsing some auctions I came across some items relating to him, some letters regarding a reel that looks like he had a hand in designing, and one of the reels - Victor reels, never heard of them.
There are more of his letters, and a Victor rod in the same sale.

To design and build the rod capable of landing the British Record carp in 1952 takes skill and knowledge... a very clever man and well ahead of his time... his books are well worth reading even if the gear is out of date... the watercraft and knowledge therein is invaluable... an Angling Legend
