Many local anglers will have been familiar with Bruno Carette a long standing club member who was involved in coaching junior members. A first class matchman, Bruno was an inspirational figure for young anglers and gave many a life long passion for our sport. Bruno passed away on June 19th, Bingley AC sends our deepest sympathy to the Carette family.
