Had me hooked!,
This review is from: Trout in Dirty Places: 50 Rivers to Fly-fish for Trout and Grayling in the UK's Town and City Centres (Hardcover)
I enjoyed this book on so many levels. It's a fascinating guide to catching trout in the least likely of places - a real confirmation of the fact that you don't need to pay a fortune to go fishing for wild trout, and that if you put in the work you can find them living quite happily in the most urban of environments (as Theo proves by catching a 17 inch brown trout under runway 2 of Manchester airport...) The individual potted histories of the rivers featured are great stories in themselves - which more often than not involved their demise earlier in the 20th century, followed by hard work from dedicated fishermen and conservationists which has led to the state of improvement they're in today... A great read, a great fishing guidebook, and a great positive story for fish and fishing in general. Now where are my waders....?
