Tribute to Bill Chisholm

William Turnbull Chisholm… Bill to his many friends.
21 October 1935 to 11 October 2017

It is with great sadness I announce the passing of a great friend and angler. Bill loved his fishing adventures whether it was on his local river, the lakes in Ireland or the wilderness of northwest Canada.

I first met Bill as a client on a trip some 30 years ago. He became a firm friend and a valuable asset to my company.

He became part of our family and we enjoyed 27 Christmas’s together in addition to thousands of miles of travelling to many great places.

Bill fished with some of the worlds best anglers and he caught many big fish from Salmon to Halibut, Bream and Sturgeon.

He often said he was lucky but we both knew that with determination and hard work you make your own luck. Bill was a successful engineer and businessman and fishing was his passion along with his/our German Shepherd dogs.

He loved them and they him. His favourites Duke and Ruby pre both deceased him by a few weeks.

If there is an afterlife with rivers and lakes, you can be sure Bill will be fishing away with them by his side.

The end of an era.
