While reading through the dailies and weeklies, we saw the sad news that Tony Fordham had died. For those too young to know who he was, he was the man responsible for the spigot and also for some of the first purpose-built rods through the Sportex brand.

His close friend, Andy Lush, recently had this to say: “Yesterday, we received the news we’d feared for some time, the sad news that Tony Fordham had passed away. My family and I have been very fortunate to call Tony and Barbara friends of ours for a long, long time. Our best wishes and condolences go to his family.”
