TV’s Mr Angling John Wilson has died following a stroke at his home in Thailand.
Famous for bringing fishing to mainstream TV in the 80’s with his popular Go Fishing series that went on to run for over a decade, Londoner John was no mean angler either with a string of massive fish both at home and abroad to his credit with roach remaining his favourite species.
Often controversial with views on water abstraction and predation in the UK, John moved to Thailand in 2013 and passed away surrounded by his family and friends. He was 75. Angling Times is preparing a special tribute issue and will update this story over the coming days.
Rest in Peace John.
