  • This is a very sad day for angling. Met John a few times. Will never forget that laugh or they way he enjoyed being with nature. We have lost a legend. Tight lines in the sky.RIP
  • RIP John, no more hearing the words 'were in'.
  • Never a fan of his fishing style myself but he was a great ambassador for angling and will be surely missed

  • He fished the river kennet a few years ago, which isn't far from me. My mate is a bailiff on the stretch he fished.

    Said he was a nice guy although a bit arrogant. He also said the stretch was closed a few days before he visited and was pre-baited.

    They always pre bait mate, otherwise it would be called "Gone Blanking with John Wilson"
