The John Hepworth Trophy
The late John Hepworth was a great ambassador for Durham City Angling Club and he worked tirelessly to develop the club and the Wear chub fishing scene which was his main angling interest. In 2019, the club introduced the 'John Hepworth Trophy' in honour of John's hard work and the trophy is awarded to the angler who catches the heaviest chub in a match each season.
