Meet Charles Rangeley-Wilson. He’s one of Britain’s best-kept secrets – angler, conservationist, traveller. He’s also one of our finest fishing writers. Now join him on the trip of a lifetime, on a journey that will make the familiar new, and the strange familiar.
Published to accompany the new BBC TV series, The Accidental Angler takes us from London suburbs to Bhutan, Icelandic moonscapes to the Seychelles – in fact, anywhere a fishing rod leads.
In The Accidental Angler you’ll battle titanic monsters on a tropical atoll and make-believe sharks on the mushy-peas-and-gravy Wash. You’ll chase inscrutable grayling through back gardens in Provence, or phantom sea trout in downtown Southampton. And you’ll dance in Brazilian carnivals and find secret rivers hidden beneath the streets.
Because fishing can take you to the heart of a landscape in a way few other forms of travel can match. A fishing rod will break the ice with locals, guides, farmers, shopkeepers, taxi drivers and bar-flies. Whether in the world’s most outlandish and awe-inspiring places or just at the end of your road, fishing will introduce you to crabby weather and crabbier locals, moon-phases, rip-tides, floods, droughts, remarkable tales, and of course fantastic slippery beasts.
