Der­mot re­mem­bered

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - LETTERS -

I much en­joyed Si­mon Cooper’s pro­file (July) of Der­mot Wil­son. In my teens, re­fur­bish­ing a rod that had been bought from the Mill, I rang them to ask what line it ought to take. I found my­self talk­ing to the great man him­self. He could not have been more charm­ing or help­ful. It was clearly not a call that was go­ing to re­sult in a sale, but he spoke as if our con­ver­sa­tion was the only thing that mat­tered to him. Tom Rochford, War­wick­shire

Der­mot Wil­son, the highly re­garded fish­ing­tackle re­tailer and chalk­stream dry-fly wizard.
