On this the fifth day of Advent or as John Andrews of Andrews of Arcadia would say the ‘Moveable Feast Of St. Nicholas’ I present to you some festive cheer, that time of the month when the Christmas cake needs feeding with a tipple. this year I have decided to lace with Cherry Heering and a drop of V.S.O.P. cognac. There is nothing more satisfying than sinking your teeth into a slice of cake, sip a good mug of tea whilst one observes an Avon float bob beneath the surface as a crimson fin grayling takes the bait. Tight lines to you all and let’s raise a jug of Porter to all who angle.
