    Default Radio 4 article: Trout in dirty places

    I set of for a days fishing yesterday morning, happy at spring making its way back after a wintery interlude, I switched on the radio and was very surprised to hear an article on fly fishing in urban rivers.

    The presenter met to fish the Wandle with Theo Pike, who has just published a book called 'Trout in dirty places' about fly fishing in post industrial urban rivers.

    Did anyone else hear this article ? It was interesting, I think the gist was that fly fishing could see a resurgence as people realise they can fish for trout on there doorsteps.

    Does anyone know where to get the book and if it is a good read ?

    Joel,

    There is a recent thread about this book with a number of posts from the author. It also gets very favourable reviews.

    Thanks Jim

    I have found it BBC News - Urban rivers get anglers hooked

    Glad I asked, I didn't realise it was filmed, since I heard it on the radio I thought it was just audio

    He was also on Talk Sport's Fisherman's Blues with Keith Arthur this morning.

    The whole show is available on podcast and Theo was on in the last half hour. An inspiring listen.
