Gerry Castles


Recommended Posts

I was thinking about Gerry and a good way for us to remember him.

 

Perhaps we could start a lure fishing forum on here and name it after him? The Argyll Forum - Lure Fishing or something like that. At the top it could feature links to the many useful articles he wrote about lure fishing.

 

Just a thought.

 

What do you guys think?

Gerry would not have wanted to see his name up in lights - so to speak!

 

Gerry will never be forgotten by his close friends and acquaintances.

 

I'm sure Gerry's close friends would prefer not to be continually reminded of their great loss.

 

Fair enough.

 

I was not a close friend of Gerry's, but I enjoyed his posts and had a lot of restpect for him indeed. All I was doing was suggesting what I thought would be a nice gesture.

 

Reading between the lines I can't help but think you would rather have written "get lost you sycophant, you didn't know Gerry so how dare you." If I read that wrong than I apologise, it sometimes happens with the written word.

 

All I can say is that upsetting people was the complete oposite of what I was trying to do. My dads old friend Tom was very keen on lawn bowls, and they named a green after him, which delighted his friends and family. I was just thinking of a similar thing.

Then perhaps you need to look at the tone that comes across in your posts.

 

I was doing nothing but making what I thought was a nice suggestion and I can't help but feel somewhat shot down my your remarks.

 

But knowing what forums can be like I am quite used to picking myself up, brushing myself down and leaving it, which I will now do.

 

Lure forum or not, one thing he would want was this!

 

Thanks to those who sent me PMs, they were appreciated.

I am in complete agreement wth Dave and Peter; it's all getting a bit unseemly lads, can we call it a day please.

After a certain age, if you don't wake up aching in every joint, you are probably dead.
