I've been informed that Terry Smith, former co-owner of Terry and John's tackle shop ( later to become Gunnies ) on Parson Cross sadly passed away earlier this week. As well as being a fine angler, Terry was also a brilliant rod builder and repairer. I still have, and use, a spliced tip float rod he built for me in the 80's.
