  • Friday 4th November 2016 - books and sport - as usual

    The grayling weekend went well and our new book, Steve Skuce's Grayling Flies, was very well received. On Sunday I fished the Wilton Water on the Wylie, and caught some nice grayling, and on Monday I had a short session in tropical sunshine with our friend Jan Grimstone on the Test, catching some small grayling and having fun spotting some big trout and carp (!) in the clear water.
    By Tuesday the temperature had dropped ten degrees. I spent two hours up to my waist in Cardigan Bay - by the time I waded ashore I was numb with cold. Came home with two mackerel (my first, I think, in November) and a bagful of parasol mushrooms.
    Today we will be busy numbering and mailing the latest two volumes in our Angling Monographs series, Salmon and Science by Dr Derek Mills and Understanding Fish Vision by Prof Lawrence Threadgold.
    Tomorrow I will take my very fat labrador, Rico, out of hibernation when we go for our first day at the pheasants!
