S&TC’s Gamefisher 2017: Limestone chemistry

It’s a huge honour to have been asked to contribute an article to Salmon & Trout Conservation UK’s annual Gamefisher magazine, but nothing really prepared me for the shock of opening the envelope and finding my name on the cover alongside Ted Hughes and Jeremy Paxman… With a brief from editor Tom Fort to write […]

Fallon’s Angler, issue 9: Delayed gratification

Here in south London, trout season opens later than elsewhere, and it’s just another quirk of fishing in the 21st century that social media isn’t letting me forget it.  Starting in early March, my Instagram and Twitter feeds have steadily been filling up with photos from big trout hunters in Scotland, Eden, Derbyshire, Wales and the […]

The Flyfishers’ Journal: Winter 2016

When I started planning the latest issue of the Flyfishers’ Journal, I was pretty sure there’d be a Balkan river theme running through it.

Fallon’s Angler, issue 8: The unsolicited salmon

Writing an article isn’t just writing an article. It’s also writing the right article, and then finding the right place to get it published. Sometimes this can feel a lot like the painstaking process of fishing itself… Three casts later, as I tracked the nymph round and felt it lifting through the currents, just as […]

Fallon’s Angler, issue 7: It’s chalk, Jacques, but not as we know it…

After taking a break for a few issues, I’m delighted to say that I’ve just had another article published in Fallon’s Angler… … this time revisiting (from a very different angle) a few days I spent exploring the chalkstreams of northern France last summer with Jeremy Lucas and a couple of pals from the South […]

Turrall Flies: 5 top tips for urban fly-fishers

When you’ve already been sniffing out the secrets (hmm…) of urban rivers for more years than you might care to count, it’s easy to forget that not everyone else has been on this journey of discovery for quite that long.

Early season: Rolling the dice

We all know early season fishing can be a gamble. And we all know gambling’s not for everyone. That early April morning, you could bet your shirt on what most people were thinking about their chances of decent fishing that day. Strong winds and heavy rain across the whole chalk country? No dice. They’d all be […]
