Timothy “Tim” Coleman, a Rhode Island-based writer and expert on fishing who has written a monthly angling column for Trade Only’s sister publication, Soundings, since 2003, died Thursday of what appears to be natural causes.

Coleman, 65, split his time between Westerly, R.I., and the Florida Keys, fishing and writing about his outings and sharing insights gained from a lifetime of fishing.

In addition to writing for Soundings, Coleman served as managing editor of the New England edition of The Fisherman magazine from 1974-2001, wrote a column for the New London, Conn.-based The Day newspaper and published eight books on fishing. He also contributed to the publications “Salt Water Sportsman” and “Boating World.”

He was well-liked and well-respected within the industry and fishing community, and news of his death spread quickly in an appropriate spot, the forum section of the Stripers Online website.

“The sport lost a big supporter and enthusiast. He was certainly an important figure and a savvy angler. He will be missed by many,” one posting read.
