Guess where I was taken fishing today!
Not a boast, please be assured, but today was very special and even in the rain it was a delightful chance to celebrate our Noble Sport in the very cradle of fly fishing. "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's goods!" Well that commandment was broken today and hopefully the Recording Angel is perhaps a retired fisher who may understand and not mark my Soul down too harshly.
If you are coming to England at all and you love fly fishing... Well let's simply say "You owe it to yourself!" Email me if you would like to fish (and take luncheon) in the footsteps of Izaak Walton and Charles Cotton. I will let you have all the necessary contact details. Every fly angler should fish this special place of pilgrimage at least once in their lives and catch the direct descendants of Izaak's and Charles' trout and grayling.
