Same Poms, I was told the daughter and son were taking over. They are gone for normal anglers anyway, minimum orders now much larger than Bob's 1kg of liquid. You need accounts to.

I could ring Bob, and get him to synthesise me anything I wanted... That is not going to be the case anymore. I spoke to the company you say. Spoke to some clueless person, who I would not trust to tie my shoe laces to be frank.

I'm lucky, I only got a couple of bits from Bob in later years, and I can get them straight from source.

RD Campbell as anglers know it is gone.

Bought last year, I was lead to believe it was because Bob was retiring, clear not. RIP.

I only found out today, that Bob died last year. I'd known Bob for a long while, a lovely, lovely man. And a genius, you really cannot comprehend how much stuff this man ACTUALLY synthesised, carp flavour wise, which then ended up in a bait, or bottle you have all purchased down the years, with some one else's label on.

People who carp anglers admire greatly, Bob was behind some of their very best stuff, especially ten-twenty years ago. He is such a great loss to the carp bait industry, he'd been around forever! I spoke to his daughter today, and she told me that RD Campbell has been sold, and is now no more literally.

I was absolutely gutted to hear, that it's because Bob had passed away a while ago. Bob helped me massively with advice, about things which I did not understand chemistry wise in my own bait making. I picked up some real knowledge from him over the phone. He did not need to help me in any way, but he did.

RIP Bob.
