Articles by Bill Rushmer

Bill Rushmer

Bill is a chartered Chemist and retired teacher who is still fighting to keep the lid off his coffin. Remains as barmy about his fishing as he was over forty years ago - and is still loving it. Married to Virginia who is just as crazy about her fishing.

Bill is an all-rounder who loves trotting rivers with his beloved centre pin but will fish for anything that has got fins. Although he has had some fair specimen fish in his time he regards his greatest angling achievement as being the Chairman of the London Region of the National Association of Specialist Anglers that raised over 30,000 for Cancer Research.

His love for Star Trek stretches into his fishing. Bill and his Klingon wife prefer to fish 'Where no angler has gone before'. Hopefully you will not find Bill or Virginia on any circuit water such as Adams Mill on the River Ouse or Willow Lake on the Stone Acres complex. These waters, with known fish, are not his scene and never have been. "I much prefer doing my own thing, fishing where I want to fish, rather than on a venue because some other angler has caught a big fish. The credit for the fish surely rests with the angler who originally found the fish."
