Moc Morgan, Fishing
Moc Morgan has spent a life time fishing. He has fished in over thirty different countries around the globe and has nine books to his credit. Having served for many years as chairman of the Welsh Anglers Council, he is the current chairman of the Federation of Welsh Anglers. In 1991 Moc was awarded the O.B.E. by the Queen for services to angling after having organised a highly successful World Fly Fishing Championship in Wales. Moc writes Welsh Country magazine’s Fishing pages every issue – a must read for fishing enthusiasts in Wales. A man of the wild, lonely fisheries in the hills of mid Wales, Moc loves being far, far from the madding crowds and on the banks of his beloved river Teifi and Teifi Pools fooling the discerning brown trout.
Tom Hutton, Walking & Cycling
It took Tom over 20 years to realise that he didn’t look good in a suit and tie, and less than 5 minutes to resign from his day job to concentrate on his writing and photography. He’s since won awards for his pictures, and travelled extensively both in the UK and abroad. He’s equally at home walking, climbing, skiing, or cycling, and his passion for the outdoors is matched only by his love of nature in general. Originally hailing from Bristol, he now lives in the Brecon Beacons National Park, with his partner, Steph, and two dogs, Honey and India.
