It is with much sadness that we at the Black Marlin Fishing Blog have to join with many, many others in the game fishing industry in mourning the loss of Jack Erskine who passed away earlier this week whilst visiting the USA on business.
Jack has been one of the chief innovators in our sport and his contribution as both a fishing tackle expert, rod builder and excellent fisherman has seen the sport evolve over the past four or so decades.
Jack also was a great mate to many as the tributes on all levels of the media can attest. Here are a couple of those links:
