I really sorry to hear that Gerry gone, when I first met him down at Wraybury in one of Bugie Pike Teach in and he did come to one of my fish in at Lodge Pool. Yes he was a well respected and had a lot of friends on Anglers Net and I will miss him in my heart.

 

Gerry rest in peace mate and my thoughts are with his family and friends

I am so sorry to hear that.

 

I first came across Gerry when we were helping out Will - the lad who had his tackle stolen, and to whom so many of you donated an item or two to help him get fishing again.

 

Gerry (a true gent, as others have already observed)gave freely of his time, and his own gear, to co-ordinate the collection and delivery of a pile of items for Will. I have fished a few times with Will since, and know how much he appreciated Gerry's help.

 

I only had the privilege of fishing with Gerry the once - at last year's Lower Itchen AN fish-in. An exchange of badinage with Gerry convinced me this was a guy I would like to fish with again, but it was not to be.

 

We will all remember him at the coming Itchen event, I'm sure.

 

A very sad loss.

Came home to an e-mail from Trevor and Josie, can't believe it.

 

Russ sums Gerry up, he'd go out of his way for anyone but the last thing he'd want to do is burden you with his problems or make you worry about him.

 

I doubt his closest friends knew how ill he was - whenever I spoke to him he was on the mend and looking forward to getting out fishing with his mates again.

 

I'm stunned he's gone.
