An angler, writer and ‘gentle soul’


Sportfishing writer Tim Coleman, who wrote a monthly fishing column for Soundings for nearly 10 years, is remembered by editor William Sisson, who considered Coleman a friend, fine fishing partner and colleague.

“Tim was a quiet, modest man who preferred to let his actions and written words do the talking for him. An exceptional saltwater angler and a prolific writer, Coleman didn’t like to put himself at the center of his stories or shine a spotlight on himself,” Sisson writes.

“With his passing, our industry lost a strong, reasoned voice for sound fisheries management and sensible conservation. Thousands of readers lost an advocate and authentic storyteller for fishing in the Northeast. And for those of us fortunate to know him, we lost a good friend.”
