Trout & Salmon (UK) - - FIRST CAST -

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?

Barack goes fish­ing.
