A Norfolk television, radio and fishing legend, once voted "the greatest angler of all time", has died at his home in Thailand.

 

John Wilson spent years bringing fishing to millions through his programmes, including Anglia's Go Fishing.

 

Today his family confirmed the broadcaster had died in Thailand, where he had lived since 2013.

I ain't into fishing, but i grew up in Norfolk, lived & worked in Norfolk a looooong time, with family & friends still there.

The guy was, indeed, a legend in Norfolk.

Saw a short documentary on the house he built here - nice plot of land.

RIP.

R.I.P. John and thanks for the memories. Only a couple of days ago I watched one of his early Go Fishing programs on YouTube. I still own a couple of his designed rods back I the UK.

I too enjoyed his style & TV persona, particularly when the occasional cock-up occurred while on air 😊

RIP to a thoroughly decent bloke.
