Holy crap! Don’t let Donny Beaver know…

£25,000 For A Spot Of Fishing is all they’re after on Hampshire’s River Test, the Mecca of English fly fishing. Silly me assumed there might be some land thrown in but nope, all you get is a day’s fishing once a fortnight.

In a season of, say, six-and-a-half months, that’s 13 days. Imagine bunging two grand in your pockets for the honesty box each time you pick up your creel…

Any other day, I might have reached for the word ‘obscene’. Alongside this, however, the deal seems positively frugal. At least Test trout are in shape.
