I spoke to Kev last year at the post office stretch on the open day what Albert organised. I believe he was filming in France early today. Sad to here.

Kev was I think around 39 and died of a Brain Tumor , apparently it was inoperable so he chose to spend his last months with his family and doing some fishing.

Absolutely devastating news, so sad for his family. He came over as such a decent bloke, great programmes. RIP

Since i passed 40 each semi serious illness has provoked fear of the big c because of awful stories like this. Carpe diem lads.

RIP Kev liked him on TV not an instant fishing star or top angler but grew into it year by year getting better and better a really good style in front of the camera. Real shame for his family likable chap.

I remember an elderly angler coming into a local tackle shop after a couple of hours on the riverbank - 'Any good?' I asked. 'No, absolutely **** - and I hope I'm still saying the same thing next year!' he replied.

Remember, we're all mortal. Life is precious!
