Disturbing The Water by Peter Wise

All alone in wild, remote places... obsessively pursuing their quarry in the fading light... is it any wonder so many anglers claim to have witnessed ghosts?

Disturbing the Water by Peter WiseIn a change from the usual haunted houses and gothic go-to’s, these original tales of tragedy, redemption and the unexpected feature a variety of watery realms, including a Highland river, an Irish lough, a North American wilderness, a Cornish seascape, long-lost carp lakes, and a Ukrainian water source with magical properties.

There are echoes of real history thrown in for good measure, including the English Civil War, the Second World War, and even a Victorian serial killer. So prepare for some chills at the water’s edge… and beyond it.


As a lifelong angler and someone who loves a good ghost story, Disturbing The Water by Petr Wise appealed to me on both counts. You certainly don't have to be an angler to enjoy these stories but it's without doubt an added bonus if you are.

Easy to read and incredibly engrossing, this collection of short stories will certainly have you hooked from start to finish. Whilst there is a general theme of fishing and water running throughout the stores, the main theme is the ghostly stores so if you like these, you will really enjoy this book.

I liked the fact that the book was split into 13 different short stories which means you can easily read one story if you have an hour to spare. If you don't have an enormous amount of time to read, you can pick up the book whenever you have time, read a story, and not have to worry about where you left off last time.

Peter has an easy style of writing which leads to an easy style of reading. Each story will have you gripped from start to finish.


We thoroughly enjoyed reading this book here at UK Fisherman and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys this wonderful sport of ours or who just enjoys a thoroughly good read.
