Wow, so sorry to hear! Scott was a great guy and contributed a lot of great info. Is there an online registry where we can leave condolences for his family?
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

Sad news, but somewhat fitting he passed doing what he enjoyed.

Sad news to hear as he frequented a few forums with great knowledge...

Does anyone have a picture of Strewth and his real name - as to pay proper respects? I can't find anything at all. Would be nice to lay a name to face.

Condolences to family and friends.

Yes that is him, As well as his passion for fishing and tackle he is well known in his field of Civil Engineering, if you google him there are many tributes to him from around the world. I considered the man a friend even though had never met him face to face but have chatted many times on fishing tackle related topics. definitely miss chatting with him.

I had the pleasure of sharing a few tackle and fishing related discussions with Scott over the years. His passion and enthusiasm will certainly be missed.
