Fishing Fantasy

Fishing Fantasy

On this November Monday, ‘Tales’ is another year older. Unfortunately I can’t head to the river to fish today even though I live only a stones throw from the banks of the Thames. However I will immerse myself in a ‘Fishing Fantasy’, a book by J. Hughes-Parry.

I have recently read on fellow bloggers sites about what they call good writing, Radio 4 covered this with ‘Words On Water’ last Thursday.

Fishing and Flying, "written with charm and fluency and salted with knowledge gained at first hand...facinating".

‘TheTuesdaySwim’ – referred to a book called ‘Fishing and Flying’ by Terence Horsley which was noted on the reverse of Fishing Fantasy along with Water Symphony by H. E. Towner Coston, all published by Eyre & Spottiswoode. There is something about these old titles and the way the words are crafted that makes them enjoyable to read and for me the illustrations are a joy to look at.

My morning started with my son wishing me a Happy Birthday and giving me a ceramic fish box that he had glazed, one now wonders what to store in it…
