Hall of Fame - Q

Bill Quinlan

Bill Quinlan

Inducted: March 2016

Bill Quinlan was born in 1936. His first love was tench, but he was also a very successful carp angler and universally respected amongst his peers.

He was friends with many anglers who became well-known in the angling world such as Jack Hilton, Len Arbery and Bob Buteux, and fished at famous carp waters such as Temple Pool, Send, Longfield, Ashlea Pool, Brooklands and Redmire. In September 1970 he caught the largest-ever brace of carp from Redmire Pool.

Bill wrote little himself, but many of his exploits were recounted by prolific author Jack Hilton, and Bill’s successes became inspirational to many young carp anglers in the 1960s and 1970s. He was also noted for his wry sense of humour. Bill died in September 1997.
