STOWMARKET: THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE FISHING ASSOCIATION was held at the Court House on Wednesday evening , Mr. J. Hayward, jun., in the chair. The report read by the Secretary showed that sport was not very plentiful last year, owing to the extremely wet weather; but the Club was very well supported and the year’s work ended in a balance in hand of £2 13s. 9d. The following Committee were elected to act this year:— Messrs. Samuel Pluck, T. A. Dadley, T. Lankester, L. Turner, J. Hayward, E. Simpson, Goddard, and A. Cook. The subscription will remain the same as last year. Mr. L. Turner and Mr. Frank Wilson were elected joint secretaries. It was recommended that the workmen’s tickets should be extended from Mr. Hayward’s bridge down to the left-hand side of the river, thus giving them the additional advantage of fishing from both banks.

This is Samuel Pluck (PL2400: Tree11) born in Braintree in 1865, a tailor and outfitter.
