You will probably have received the e-mail from Ron about Tommy unfortunately passing away. Tommy was of the nicest, friendliest guys you could have met on and away from the waters edge. Tommy devoted 1000's of hours to his angling even when his illness got to a stage he struggled with mobility, and found it hard to get to the waters edge and set-up. A true gentleman that will be missed from the Scottish angling scene...Went up to see Tommy when he had to stop his overnighters and he was as positive and chirpy as always and it was a real shock to hear the news. My deepest condolences to his family...Also I know Sandy will be missing his master....

I know you'll be bivvied up somewhere mate on one of the great Carp lakes in the sky....Tight lines...Deepest respect. Mark

I received the e-mail about this whilst up at Fintry and passed the news to others up there. Sad times indeed. Mark's words sum up eloquently the measure of the man.Tommy will be missed up at Fintry. I know people say lots of nice things when someone passes away but this was still the case for Tommy when he was fishing the water. Even up to last month, anglers asked if he was around.

Mark told me earlier this year of him stopping over-nighters. Such a shame as I know how much he loved Fintry. On long summer days, we would spend time talking about all sorts of stuff, touching on some subjects I would be teaching at the time. His despair was evident in discussing the way humanity often treats our fellow man.

I will remember him for his wry smile, massive bivvy, sandy the nipping dog and the day he fell in love with 3 in 1 coffee sachets. R.I.P.
