A Fisherman's journey ends for 2012 as the trout fishing season closes.


Tony Mair's ridiculous mission (his words, not ours) to catch a trout from every river in the UK has continued throughout 2012. You may think he's mad, we think he's an inspiration to angler's everywhere! Tony contacted us after the season closed on 30th September with some brief thoughts on the mission so far. Check out his website ... it's well worth a read.

My season has ended, as it should (for a Northern Hemisphere Troutman) on September 30th. The UK has had the crappiest Summer, and we flyfishers all have had to grin and bear it!

My ridiculous mission continues, and with six more Counties ‘netted’ I have the finishing line in my sights(!?)...I have Bedfordshire, Cheshire and Merseyside, still to capture.

The ’close season’ is one for optimism, for 2013 beckons and will be a spectacular year for us, so now we plot and plan! I hope you enjoy reading of my exploits this year.
