" I hate to be the bearer of very sad news.
Late last night we received a phone call, which informed us that Bill Proctor had passed away on his property yesterday.

He will be sadly missed by many."


fishing ethics are the things that we do when we are unobserved by others!!

I just heard.... Holy Cow!!!!!

Bill is/was a bloody champion in many ways. The knowlege & know-how he takes with him is unreplaceable.

He will be sadly missed indeed.

Our deepest sympathies go to Bill's family at this sad time.

The passing of a really good bloke.  Sad news indeed.  You'd go a long way to find a nicer man than Bill.

 :OMG ......... :( I second all the above,
I had the opportunity to fish Bills big dam once and whilst I donuted, a visiting US angler with us scored a meduim sized Barra. Bill was most obliging and showed us around his ponds, explaining the process.
Will be sorely missed as a stocking supporter, resouce and a gentleman.

Yeah I'm pretty upset, great bloke Bill. Bernas was very ill just before christmas, being a few weeks in hospital. It will hit her very hard.

Just speaking with Beau, He said Kurt is heading down to help out for a week or so with any final orders left. Good onya Kurt.

this just sucks.

There will be a private cremation service for Bill.

I'm thinking for those wanting to send a tribute or card could send to their shop in Bundy.
