A 'River Diaries' Photo Found

Post by Colonelgsc » Mon May 11, 2015 10:29 am

Under direction from my Gaffer, I've been 'tidying up' my study and fell upon a lever arch file containing photos I'd long believed lost. Among them was this image of a 5lb 1oz chub, taken on a trip to Burgate on the Hants Avon, dated 17th February 1984. Now, if you reach for your copy of 'River Diaries', page 271, you'll read the honourable Yates's account of that trip and mention of that very fish. 35 years later and the circle is squared :fishing2:
