Default Barrie Rickards - Sad news

It's with deep regret that I have to inform you all that Barrie Rickards passed away today.

I have no more details at present but will keep you informed as and when I hear any more.

Colin

That is indeed sad news Colin.
He was an outstanding angler, the man forgot more than I'll ever know about lure fishing. I love watching him perch fishing on a small river.



Condolences to his family.

Very sad, Colin. A great loss to angling as well, but my thoughts are with his family and close friends and my condolences go to them all.

Very sad news indeed Colin. Barrie was one of those rare breed, a genuine giant in angling, and I was proud to know him. I'm lost for words, except to say at this moment in time, R.I.P. mate. Always remembered.

Derek.

A very sad day for angling.....i met him a couple of times and found him a gent of the old British school.

Pike anglers owe him a lot of respect.

Derek.
I can only repeat what Derek has just said.

I first met Barrie in 1963 at the residence of Ray Webb in the early days of the formation of the Northern Specimen Group.

Very sad news indeed. I only ever met Barrie on one occasion but he came across as a very nice and likable man, Condolences to Barrie's family and close frinds, I'm sure he had many.

The great and hugely inspirational Barrie Rickards passed away today. The man responsible for starting me out on the road to being a pike angler.

If ever a sport owed somebody, it is this man. He helped move the species from the hate list of most clubs into our premier sporting fish.

RIP Prof
