The very least that the Perth City Fathers should do is erect a plaque on the site of one of game angling’s iconsVery sad news. Big fan of Malloch and what he achieved so it is sad his name will not live on via the tackle shop. To add insult to injury it looks to me like the Courier got his middle name wrong!
What a travesty, I live in Wales with family inPerth so a trip to P D Malloch's is always on the agenda for me.However over the years I have noticed the fishing stocks go less and less with shooting taking over.There have been a lot of fishing shops in Perth and all of them close apart from P Ds. THere are a lot of anglers in Perth so I can't understand why a tackle shop can't survive , there is good game,course and sea fishing all close to Perth.I suppose the shops in Dundee will be looking over their shoulder now. Are P Ds going to be doing on line sales or is this it. Just a thought though Fishtech also went at the end of January and that was a big concern
