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 […]

New life for the Taff

Quite apart from the constant hum of creativity that means we’re now getting to play with some of the finest, most sophisticated tackle ever deployed in search of elusive fish, I think it’s fair to say that two developments – no, movements – within the last 20 years have revolutionised the lives of most of […]

French chalkstreams: Taking the urban angle

A few weeks ago I got back from a flying visit to the Pas de Calais with my fishing pals Jeremy Lucas, Keith Wallington and Jacques van Niekerk, and published a short account of part of our visit on my Urbantrout blog… Steep chalkstream headwaters with constant year-round flow can only mean one thing… historic […]

Easter Monday

Arc-welder sun in sheet-steel sky. Daffodil banks, LDOs tumbling downwind. And somewhere, under slag-heaps and shopping trolleys… the hope that a fish will rise… (Model and fellow urban fly-fisher: my good pal Nick Steedman. Full disclosure: previously also published on urbantrout.net)

2014: A year of mending urban rivers

Urban river restoration: Interview for SCALE Magazine

It’s not every day you get interviewed on your home water for an international fishing ezine.
