One thought on “Philip Hogg

  1. Phil was a very special friend to Brenda and myself (Sgt 628 John Roffe-Smith, retired 22 years, now living at the foot of Mt Snowden, North Wales). Phil. was a founder member of the Fellowship of the Trout in the Heather Bevy and we, with others, spent many times and accumulated many memories in the Bothies and Estate Lodges of the Scottish Highlands and Islands. In the bright blue or drizzling grey we fly-fished many lochs and over a dram or two at the end of a long day we talked until the dawn lightened the sky. He never spoke a bad word of anyone and was a truly family person. Only two years ago we were running together on Ben Loyal and now it is hard to accept that he has gone. He was so fit and seemingly healthy. The many many good memories remain. Recently whilst visiting Assynt (Lochinver Region) and whilst boat fishing for wild brown trout, I looked up at a blue sky and said ‘Why’. A whisp of cloud appeared resembling a running figure. I wasable to smile briefly. Perhaps, just perhaps, he is still trying or may even now have caught his trout at the Loch of the Green Corrie, only it’s not called that !
    I, and his true friends, will always remember him at future Bevvies.
