Mark Sosin – A legend Of Fishing And Writing Remembered

The fishing world was dealt a major blow with the passing of legendary angler, writer, and television host Mark Sosin on Thursday, June 30. Mark was 89 years old.

It is obvious the impact he made on the industry as social media lit up today with fans, friends and industry professionals sharing the condolences. Many shared the impact Sosin’s work in the industry made on their career.

Mark broke into national television with Mark Sosin’s Saltwater Journal, the first and longest-running program on marine game fishing. The show ran for an impressive 27 years and made a huge impact on the industry and paved the way for fishing TV shows today. Traveling the world to waters rarely fished, he fished in more than 40 countries on five continents.

TV show host Mark Davis – Big Water Adventures shared on his page.

Incredibly sad to hear of the passing of a Legend, Friend, Mentor and a true quality human being. Mark Sosin will be missed.

His larger than life presence and unmistakable voice dominated the saltwater airwaves for many decades as he helped launch countless careers over his lifetime both on and off the water in the fishing industry.

One of the greatest to ever send a cast into the ocean and one who also inspired me to do what I do now.

He will be greatly missed.Rest in Peace, Mark.
