    Looking forward to reading some more tales of campaigns you had since although I suspect the best one has already been told.

    Yes it did but in a different way, it was easier to catch but for me a very special water.
    I could sit and talk about my captures[and failings] for hours, but I find it difficult to put my campaigns in writting, this is only the second piece Ive written.

    Fantastic story .... really really enjoyed it ... it really did capture the true essence of fishing for me ...

    That's a sad ending to the story but all too familiar these days unfortunately ...

    It should not be a sad thing, ok the scenery and the fish have changed, but the angling opertunities are there for those willing.
    Lets face it, if someone came along and saw the river for their first time and its inhabitants, they wouldnt know how it looked in the past, it would be a perfect target for them now.

    I know what you're saying from one point of view, it's certainly a cracking river still and I love it but I must admit that I'd much rather be out on it's wilder reaches than amongst buildings.

    I was having a break from this site when you posted the story and pictures, but a good friend copied and emailed it to me.

    I can only reiterate what everyone else has said, but I would like to add.

    Simply one of the best fish ever caught in the UK, on it's own, even more so when the effort and dedication is taken into consideration. Period!!!
