'Beneath the Black Water is the wonderful account of a mad, disrupting, unforgiving but ultimately joyous addiction - an addiction not just to the ferox, but to the truly wild waterscapes they inhabit. No fellow angler could be unimpressed; no ordinary human will quite believe it.' Chris Yates, writer and eccentric angler 'This quest for a sense of belonging comes with dreams of great fishes. Mr Berry has written a beautiful, haunted poem of friendship and obsession.' Jeff Barrett, Caught by the River

Not a 'how to' book, but a more a 'why we do it'.
Jon goes into details of his personal life that many of us wouldn't dare to write.
Its a very private account of friendships and the love of both fishing and the places he fishes.
The journey is a long and difficult one, and one I suspect isn't over just yet......
A book that is well worth adding to your collection.
Well written, easy going read with some beautiful photographs.
An insight into why some men/women have the desire to put all normal things of life aside in the pursuit of a dream.
In this case it was too catch the Ferox Trout, but it could just as easily be, too climb mountains or go around the the world in a sailing boat.
Excellent read, I could not put the book down !!
