Bude Canal mem­o­ries

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - News & Views -

MANY thanks to Peter Cock­will for hish rem­i­nisces on the Bude Canal AnglingAngli As­so­ci­a­tion (TF is­sue 499). I am veryve pleased to see that it is alive and well.w My fat her, who ho in­tro­duced me tot fish­ing, re­tired to Bude, oc­cu­pyin­goc­cupy a re­tire­ment home op­po­site the Bren­donBrendo Arms. The year be­fore his death I ar­ranged for all my coarse fish­ing equip­ment (some of it his) to be moved to Corn­wall. Un­for­tu­nately, he was un­able to join the club be­fore his death. Both he and my mother are buried in St Michael’s Church over­look­ing the fishery. On my nu­mer­ous vis­its to Bude I was taken with the canal, so close to the sea! I am now ob­sessed with fly­fish­ing, but maybe some­day I will join him. David Down­ham, by email
