Nothing is more surreal yet exhilarating than casting a fly for iconic clean-water species in the historic surroundings of our most damaged river-scapes - centres of post-industrial decay, but now also of rediscovery and regeneration.

About the Author : Theo Pike is an angling/environmental writer. As Chairman of the Wandle Trust, he was instrumental in restoring south London's River Wandle to its former status as a world famous chalkstream fishery. This project's success inspired the Wild Trout Trust to establish a national "Trout in the Town" programme, with the Wandle as its flagship initiative. Theo has done much work advising groups on mobilising local support, motivating volunteers, and best practice for river clean ups. He was awarded the Wild Trout Trust's Bernard Venables Award for services to wild trout conservation and internationally honoured as a Sage Conservation Hero in 2009.
