Doing the Coquet proud

I read a lot of local newspaper fishing reports as part of my job. The who-caught-what snippets provide useful raw material for fillers in the Trout Fisherman pages from time to time and the correspondents who do the thankless ring-around  to track down stories each week are among fishing’s unsung heroes. I doubt even they would ever pretend that their brief allows them much scope  for exploring angling’s aesthetics, however.

Which makes Andrew Gibson’s photographic tribute to the River Coquet in the Newcastle Journal recently all the more outstanding. Had the paper run the photos with click-through links to a wallpaper-size version of each shot, it could have had a minor traffic spike on its hands.

More of this, please, local press.
