Roy Beddington was a fisherman who strongly wished to become an artist, but was unable to fully realize that dream. It was a dilemma with which he struggled all his life. As a painter, he illustrated several books, while as a fisherman, he wrote essays about fishing and was engaged in fishing-related associations. He studied at the Slade and later married rider Anna Griffith in 1952, although she committed suicide in 1967. Their daughter Rosa (1956-2001) became a famous biologist. Roy Beddington also wrote and illustrated his own books on fishing and wildlife motifs.
