A Midsummer Night Stream by Mereo Books
by Chris Newton
From boyhood adventures with roach, perch, pike and trout to encounters with great salmon in wild Welsh rivers and battles with huge sea trout on sultry summer nights, this memoir is a thoughtful journey through a lifetime’s angling, from the earliest beginnings with bent pin and worm to success with big fish and experiences in later life as an angling writer.
It is full of tales to thrill the angler’s blood, along with many intriguing, and often amusing, stories of encounters with other fishermen, but above and beyond that it is an exploration of what fishing is about and what makes the angler tick.
The author describes this entertaining book as ‘a little retrospective self-indulgence… a chance to write about my own experiences and feelings about fishing’.
