2018 1st edition. 8vo paperback (148 x 210mm). Ppxvi,248. Not illustrated.

"This little book is a compilation of some of my personal philosophies, experiences, and thoughts - both serious and light-hearted - about angling in general and my fishing, shooting and working spaniel experiences, all of which are based on true facts and experiences, although one or two stories may be cushioned with a modicum of poetic licence". Ron Holloway's last book, edited and published after Ron's death by his great friend David Hamnett. Side Stream Reflections is replete with good counsel on the preservation of our waterways and the fish that inhabit them. Includes a foreword by the publisher, David Hamnett, a statement from the Wild Trout Trust and a personal memory of Ron from Charles Rangeley-Wilson. "Ron Holloway is greatly respected in the world of wild trout fishery management. He keepered the Martyr Worthy fishery on the Itchen for 34 years and visited other fisheries, across the world, to offer his experience and bring back to the UK what he'd learned, especially in North America. In the mid-80s, he was extolling and practising ideas that are the bedrock of today's fishery management: Ron spoke of the need for holistic catchment management and used woody debris to create cover and habitat diversity in his own river. His first book, You Should Have Been Here Last Thursday, outlined his thinking and tales from decades on and in his river. Ron has influenced and inspired many of today's riverkeepers and activists for our rivers and their trout, including lots of students (and staff) at Sparsholt. He was a founding father of the Wild Trout Society, the progenitor of the Wild Trout Trust". (Extract from a Wild Trout Trust announcement when he was presented with the 2016 Bernard Venables Award). The publisher has stated that any proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Wild Trout Trust, as requested by Ron.
