    Sad news and a massive loss to not only his family and friends but angling as well - a true legend who inspired so many!
    Partridge of Redditch - the DNA of hooks!

    For many of my generation Rod was simply the most influential angler and the main reason we got into carp fishing. R.I.P.
    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

    Rod taught me the importance of drinking alcohol while fishing. Probably while I never catch anything. Rest in peace you absolute legend.

    Reading rods early articles and first books p a massive part in fuelling my addiction to carp that has lasted for 35 years so far minus a few gaps and lay offs along the way. It's down to him and a few other early writers that I have a pastime I still love even in these much changed days. There was always great tales, intrigue, success, failures and humour that painted a better picture than a thousand YouTube vids.

    When books were few and far between the carp strikes back stood alone as the best ever read, comedy, knowledge and stories a plenty. Rod was the gifted gentlemen, he gave so many laughs to others, one slide show in wallington had us in tears. There will never be another bounty hunter with the same talent and humour. Rest in peace big fella
