We were saddened by the news this week of the passing of fishing broadcaster, journalist and author John Wilson. There won’t be many anglers who haven’t heard of John, whose impact will be felt for many years to come.
John very much loved fishing the Wye. Along with his nephew, Martin Bowler, he was instrumental in helping us establish the coarse fishing side of the Passport scheme.
We will always be indebted to him for that and for his support of our wider conservation work.
Our thoughts are with John’s family.
