RIP Clint Jones. (troutandbream/rodreellurefish)

Post by meppstas » Tue Dec 18, 2018 8:13 am

It saddens me to inform you that my good friend & often fishing buddy Clint Jones (troutandbream site name)passed away peacefully yesterday.
You would all know Clint as Rodreellurefish and have watched his fishing videos on youtube. For you who may not know Clint was diagnosed with stomach cancer around fourteen months ago which was terminal and could not be operated on. He was given six months to live, Clint stayed positive, had his chemo & radio therapy and never gave up. Clint fished as often as he could while still keeping a positive attitude. He was a great husband & a wonderful father to his three young daughters all under the age of thirteen years.. We had some great trout fishing trips to the rivers in the North and quite a lot of laughs along the way too.. I don't think there was any trip where he didn't fall in the river.. It was just something that happened every time we fished together.. He also had a habit of lobbing his lure in a tea tree bush of a gum tree next to the river, I'd say to Clint " Oh not again mate" his reply was "Well the F****g trout aren't in the river so why not try elsewhere".. Yes, we had some fun times for sure, I'm really going to miss our trips on together on the rivers. One thing I know is that when I'm in a river that we fished together, I'll look across and see him there flicking a lure around.
Clint's memories will still live on with me as long as I live..

RIP my friend & good mate..
CLINTON JONES 18/9/78 - 17/12/18
cheers

As sick as he was, he stayed positive & always had a smile on his face.

It's funny how you seem to know someone you have never met.
Clints videos were both entertaining and educational
You could tell from those videos what a great bloke he was
Such a young guy, (obviously) taken too soon
So sad

This is really sad such a nice bloke I spoke with him plenty of times not here but on Youtube. My sincere condolences to his wife and the girls.
R.I.P. Clint :water:
Water is the most essential element of life, because without water you can’t go fishing. :water:
