Finally there’s a tribute to Clive Gammon, one of the great angling writers, who has died aged 83. Clive was one of the world’s top sport’s journalists, covering Olympic Games, Ali fights and World Cups.
But fishing was his first love and through Sports Illustrated’s travel agency he was able to fish all over the world, from Christmas Island to the Falklands, and write about it.
He wrote several pioneering books on Welsh and Irish fishing, but his best works are those documenting his travel adventures, ‘I Know a Good Place’ (1989) and ‘Castaway’ (2005).
