We mourn for Jamie Phillips

a young life lost too soon

Jamie Phillips, Dafen Llanelli

Jamie was a corteous and caring young man who’d been a member of WSTAA’s Youth Fly-fishing team for several years. Although of a shy disposition, he made a valid contribution to the team and at the International Championship on Grafham Water in 2010, Jamie was the Top Welsh Rod. He was overjoyed with his success and everyone was proud of his remarkable achievement.

He loved fishing and was equally at home bank fishing or boat fishing. He’d worked hard to perfect his skill and enjoyed fly-dressing too.

Jamie will be greatly missed – but always remembered with fondness.
