I'm lucky enough to publish some work each year in that fine UK angling magazine Trout and Salmon, and have been associated with T&S for what are becoming rather many years. I'm also proud to publish occasional articles in Waterlog. Those two journals have become an important part of my angling life.
In a typical year I fish for pike and zander during the later autumn and winter; for sea-trout (in Denmark, Ireland and elsewhere) from late March until the end of September; and whenever possible, for grayling in the earlier part of the autumn. Occasionally, too, I return to my favourite English rivers - in Yorkshire, or the Wessex chalkstreams - to fish for brown trout and grayling. I enjoy that variety, and though I prefer catching all species on the fly-rods I'm by no means averse to catching pike (for example) on streamers, jerkbaits, spinners, plugs, softbaits or deadbaits when conditions and the behaviour of the fish require.
