Caught by the River


20th September 2009


An anthology of new work by established writers and talented newcomers, all drawn together by an enthusiasm for fishing. Edited by Dexter Petley and with a Foreword by Chris Yates.

The diversity of styles and imaginations reflects the breadth of the subject – from criminal gangs dealing stolen carp in East London to the aesthetics of the perfect rough-stream trout fly. These are the writings of novelists, poets, craftsmen of two worlds – their skills with hook and line matched by their ability to land the perfect word. They are: John Andrews, John Galligan, Andrew Greig, Colin Higgins, David Knowles, Chris McCully, Dexter Petley, David Profumo, William Wyatt.
