|I was brought up in a small
village on Salisbury plain, which had the the
river Till running through it. This little stream eventually ended
up in the River Wyle and then that joined the river Avon. The river Till
passed the end of our garden - and that was possibly the beginning of a
life long fascination for me with rivers and streams.
From the age of 10 I have fished the river Avon at Enford, I still
have a rod on the water now and always look forward to visiting it. The
Avon is possible one of the most underrated chalk streams in the south
During my early twenties I lived in Wales, with the property forming
the bank of the famous river Cothi. I could look out of the window and
watch salmon and sewin (sea trout) swimming past. I did manage to catch
the odd one now and then.
|During the years, I have been lucky enough to have fished many of the
chalk streams of southern England and many streams and rivers from other
parts of the country.
Having worked in the IT industry for the last 20 years, we have now parted company as it is time to get away from fantasy and time wasting and get back to common sense and reality - the countryside and fishing
I have now decided that it is the right time for me to share some of my experiences with other people who are new to the sport. To help them learn to not only fish but to enjoy the countryside and what it has to offer us all.
