Hall of Fame - F

Pete Frost

Pete Frost

Inducted: March 2014

Frosty, as he is known to his friends, is essentially a very successful all-round angler, but went through the ‘obligatory’ carp phase when he became obsessed with the species.

During this time he fished with and influenced some of the country’s finest carp anglers of the 1960s: Bill Keal, Jack Hilton, Bill Quinlan, Roger Smith, Alec Lewis, Len Arbery and Kenny Ewington. Pete is particularly known for his exploits at Tiddenfoot Pit in the 1960s where he caught carp to 31lb. He was for many years a member of the redoubtable Hertfordshire Specimen Group. Jack Hilton wrote a short chapter in his highly regarded book, Quest for Carp, titled ‘My Friend Pete’, which recounted some of Frosty’s early exploits.

Though never a prolific writer, Frosty (or Uncle Pete as he became known to his younger friends in later years) did put pen to paper on a few occasions. An early member of the British Carp Study Group, Pete’s contribution to carp fishing was acknowledged in 1980 when he was elected as the Group’s chairman. He was subsequently made an honorary vice-president.

After a long and illustrious life in angling, including a great deal of voluntary involvement in the administrative side (clubs, societies and consultative, etc.), Pete Frost absolutely deserves his election into the Carp Fishing Hall of Fame.
