Many owed so much to Rex

Angling Times (UK) - - NETBUSTERS -

REX Briscoe, who was owner of the fa­mous Bro­mages tackle shop in Il­ford un­til re­tir­ing a few years back, has passed away.

In its hey­day, Bro­mages sup­ported a brilliant match team, with some of the big­gest match names in Es­sex as mem­bers.

I knew Rex as an an­gler and cus­tomer when I worked for Daiwa, and he was sim­ply one of the nicest men one could ever hope to meet.

Plenty of an­glers in that part of the world ap­pre­ci­ate how much of what they’ve achieved is down to Rex and Bro­mages.

Many, me in­cluded, will miss him. My con­do­lences go to his fam­ily and many friends.
