The lack of fishing opportunities has led me to finding my fix elsewhere.  Trout , by James Owen is a smashing read charting the history and geography of the species and piecing together trouty gems of literature from Izaak Walton to George Mellie, notably an extract from Hooked!, his book about fishing, where he described landing a trout, then lying down in the undergrowth and masturbating into a large dock leaf.

erm....doesn't everyone do that after catching a large trout ? Seems like a perfectly normal response to landing a lunker.
