It is with great sadness that we report the death of Jim Glasspool, who played a key role in the creation of Angling Trust and Fish Legal and served as a director of both organisations.

As long-time secretary of the Test & Itchen Association, Jim was in many ways the embodiment of the chalkstream heritage and an influential figure in fighting to protect our freshwater environment.

He combined strong principles with great kindness; his ability to build trust between people played a critical part in bringing together our precursor organisations.

A family funeral (by invitation only) will take place on 23 September. The family has asked for donations in his memory to the Second Chance charity and the Princess Royal Trust for Carers in Hampshire via www.jimglasspool.muchloved.com

Jim was a really good guy. I met him many times in the formative days of the Angling Trust. Very sad news.
