Can you imagine our prime minister fly-fishing? In America, their politicians seem more in tune with the outdoors. President Bush senior is a fly-fisher and so, it seems, is president Barack Obama who in June went trout fishing on rivers in the Adirondacks, New York State. The secretive visit was his second flyfishing trip and apparently took a year to plan. Meanwhile, also in June, Donald Trump junior (the current president’s campaigning eldest son) tried his hand on a river trip in Montana. Can we hope that Jeremy and Theresa might gain a better understanding of fishing, perhaps by sharing a rod on the Dee at Balmoral?
