Sad News: Local Writer Tim Coleman Dies While Fishing
We are saddened by the news that well known fishing writer and columnist Tim Coleman passed away Thursday morning. His body was found on the sand trail in Weekapaug, Rhode Island. Coleman, 65, had apparently been fishing and was equipped with his gear when he was discovered by a walker. Our deepest condolences go out to his family, friends and colleagues.
Tim dedicated his life to fishing, including working for 27 years as managing editor of the Fisherman Magazine’s New England edition, followed by 10 years of freelance writing. Tim has written hundreds of articles in various regional and national magazines, including several articles in On The Water in recent years.
