Fishing is the balm to all troubles, frequently on the Mottisfont beat of his beloved River Test, but also as far afield as Patagonia and Russia. There cannot be many anglers for whom the diagnosis of a killer disease results in a dramatic increase in catches, but Mick May is one of them.
Adrian Dangar, The Field
This quirky, intriguing and inspirational memoir is the sort of book you could admire and enjoy even if you had not the slightest interest in fishing.
A tale of tails, fishy and fabulous, and in aid of an important cause, full of humour, full of heart.
An inspiring book
