BEST BOOK EVER on life in a trout stream,
This review is from: Life of a Chalkstream (Hardcover)
This is exactly the book I have desperately been waiting for for so many years.
Where is that gifted person, and is there actually one out there, able to combine his love for all those creatures of a pristine chalk stream with an outstanding knowledge of nature's secrets and an exceptional understanding of the interactions in that fascinating life of a brown trout river? Would he - as a flyfisherman - be able to widen the flyfishermen's horizon and answer all those questions they ever had or even weren't aware of having them? And would this person be able to tell all this in a captivating and true language?
I can't stop reading, being so emotionally touched by the amount of knowledge, wisdom, understanding, truthfulness and love. By describing his personal experience with the restoration of a neglected chalk stream the author enthralls and fascinates me and makes me look at a trout river in an absolutely new way. In a way of understanding, seeing, caring.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, Simon !
