King's Lynn AA's long-standing secretary Mike Grief officially retires at the club's AGM tonight .

But those who know the man with the moustache are sceptical whether he will really step back from angling politics.

As well as his sterling efforts for Lynn, over 18 years on its committee, Grief also played a major role in fisheries consultatives and regional angling politics.

And in a sport where tensions often simmer between different factions and cliques, Lynn AA has remained a club which welcomes all to enjoy its waters, whether matchman, pleasure or predator angler.

Grief's successor is respected Lynn specimen hunter Ashley Brown, who has served on the club's committee for some years.
