    I have just finished re-reading Greg French’s “Frog Call” and it’s the mark of a great book when it is thought provoking and entertaining no matter how many times you read it.

    One positive aspect of lockdowns is having a bit more time to sit and read.

    Got to be some upside.

    True…I’ve recently discovered Mark Kurlansky.A Journalist and prolific author who writes about diverse subject matter.I’ve got his “Salmon: A Fish,the Earth,and the History of Their Common Fate” and “The Unreasonable Virtue of Fly Fishing”.His other books are worth checking out (like “Cod:A Biography of the Fish that changed the World”)

    Thanks for the tip. I have ordered in prep for the next lockdown.

    Kurlansky’s books relating to fish and fisheries are fantastic, but his books ‘Salt: A World History” and “The Basque History of the World” are also great reads.

    Only 3 more lockdowns til Xmas so plenty of time still for reading …

    Another vote for Kurlanksy , loved Salt , Cod & Salmon , though imho The Unreasonable Virtue of Fly Fishing isn’t his strongest book .

    Haven’t thought I read too much this winter but did really enjoy Trout by James Owen , Golden Days by Romilly Fedden , and Peter Hayes’s Trout and Flies Getting Closer was very interesting.

    A Mean-Mouthed, Hooked-Jawed, Bad-News, Son-of-a-Fish.

    By Wolf Avni.

    Came across this by accident in a second hand bookshop, great stories from a part of the world I just don’t associate with trout fishing.
