It came as a great shock when I heard Rod
Hutchinson had passed away in June this
year. I knew he had not been well for a
while but had no idea it was so serious.
My thoughts immediately went out to his
family and friends, as I knew he had
grandchildren, as do I, and how devastated
they would be. Rod was one of the most
well respected and popular guys I have
ever met. I honestly have never heard a
bad word said about him in the 40 years I
have known him, and you can't say that
about many people!
Rod was a pioneer, an inventor, a great angler and writer, a guester and
was as keen a carper as you could ever meet. His contribution to carp
fishing was huge, mainly through his writings in both magazines and
books – books that I have read dozens of times. He was a great writer as
I say, but more than that, he had a unique gift of being able to entertain
the reader with his humorous tales of life in the Colne Valley. I was very
fortunate to have known Rod, to have fished with him, listened to his
stories and to be able to call him a friend. But in all honesty, it was more
than that – he was my hero, and my one regret is that I probably never
told him.
Next month I am publishing a tribute to Rod in the second 'Old School
Carping' edition of Big Carp with lots of pictures of Rod, an account of
my friendship over the years fishing with him at Savay and Harrow, an
old article Rod wrote 30 years ago and comments from some of his
many friends – definitely a collector’s issue, so if you want to order one
in advance, here are the details…
