Certainly a great guy, he was an immense influence behind many fly tiers, old & new. A sad day indeed. RIP Bob.

No, one of my great influences, had a way of explaining things, in writing, that made sense to me. He will be sorely missed.

Very sad news, I know he'd not been in very good health for some time. As well as being a great angler & fly tyer with many interesting patterns to his name, he was an ambulance driver & medic so many, many people owe him a huge debt of gratitude.

RIP. One of the most enduring memories of fly fishing from when I first started as a kid is a pic of Bob Carnill with his bag from, I think, Grafham. I can't remember which book its in but I must have looked at it a hundred times and thought, 'I want to be like that fella'. I still do! Bon voyage, Bob.
