Trout Fisherman (UK) - - News & Views -

Jake Water­man – Rus­sell Hill (now TF Ed­i­tor) was the guy who taught me ev­ery­thing I know. A great an­gler and mem­o­ries of night fish­ing down on the River Nene catch­ing big eels is some­thing I will never for­get . Jim Foster – 40 years! Mega. Fab team. When I was grow­ing up I used to en­joy Pete Cock­will’s fea­tures be­cause he used to fish the wa­ters I loved. To get to know him later in life and find out he was a lovely, kind and gen­er­ous bloke was the ic­ing on the cake. Great that he’s still in the mag­a­zine to­day. Alas­tair Lo­gan – My scout master used to take me fish­ing to Or­ton Wa­ter ev­ery Satur­day. I learned my ap­pren­tice­ship there. He also taught me to tie up flies. Happy mem­o­ries and you never for­get the feel­ing of a trout hit­ting the fly even when I tem­po­rar­ily left fish­ing to chase girls! Peter Lor­rimer –My mo­tocross buddy when I was look­ing for some­thing else to do be­tween can­celled race meet­ings. Too wet to race means it’s great to fish!
