Full of interesting facts and anecdotes.I recommend that you add Trout in Dirty Places to your bookshelf. --Institute of Fisheries Management magazine, Summer 2012
Whether you are a keen fisherman looking for a new challenge, or a city-dweller interested in bringing nature to your doorstep, Theo Pike s trout fishing in the urban wilderness will you in the right direction. --Scottish Field, May 2012

About the Author
Theo Pike is an angling, environmental and marketing writer. As Chairman of the Wandle Trust, he was instrumental in stating to restore south London s River Wandle to its historic status as a world-famous chalkstream fishery. This project s success inspired the Wild Trout Trust to establish a national Trout in the Town programme, with the Wandle as its flagship initiative. As a result of his experience in urban river restoration, Theo has done much work advising other groups on mobilising local support, motivating volunteers, best practice for river clean-ups, and promoting positive links between angling and conservation. He was awarded the Wild Trout Trust s Bernard Venables Award for services to wild trout conservation in 2008, and internationally honoured as a Sage Conservation Hero in 2009. He lives, with his wife Sally, in south London.
