Many owed so much to Rex
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.
