Blog round-up

In the end (and thanks to Bish on Fish for the tip-off) fate gave Eric King-Turner just under two years’ grace Down Under, after his decision to seek fishing pastures new and emigrate from the UK while he was still young enough to do so. At 102.

Now he’s dead, the licence he bought for the 09-10 season just days before passing, never to be used.

Worth the trip? I suspect so.

Rest in peace, Eric and many thanks from hacks everywhere for a great story.

And finally, pay no heed to the weekend’s extreme weather warnings, my fellow UK anglers. Fishing is all about attitude.
