There are many reasons for this; the peace and quiet that it offers; the fact that you can, ordinarily, eat what you catch; even, in some people’s view, the return to a sort of hunter-gatherer mentality. Whatever the reason for going, though, one thing that never ceases to surprise people is how far a committed angler will go on a fishing trip. There are perfectly good streams and rivers in this country, they will argue. Why go half way round the world?
