It is with great sadness that we have to announce that our editor David Linkie passed away on Saturday, 19 June.
The authoritative voice of the Scottish and North East industry in Fishing News for over 25 years, and the paper’s editor since 2015, Dave was a tireless champion of commercial fishing whose knowledge and dedication were without parallel.
Our heartfelt condolences go to his family and many friends.
In lieu of flowers, his family have asked that donations be made in Dave’s memory to the two charities he always supported: the Fishermen’s Mission and the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
Rest in peace, Dave – we will miss you so much.
