Welcome to North & Wild, a blog about fishing the beautiful rivers and lakes of the North of England and beyond, the satisfaction of cooking what you have caught, grown or gathered, and the soundtrack that, for me, compliments these simple pursuits and pleasures.
In today’s fast paced world, it’s easy to lose touch with the things that make us who we truly are, the things that exhilarate and excite us, fire our imagination and fuel our dreams … I started writing as a means of ensuring I make time for my passions, I hope this blog inspires you to do the same.
Thanks for reading.
Hey Adam, I love the sound and sentiment behind this. During our travels in the last 18months my wife and I and our dog have spent some amazing times in the wild foraging and meeting locals who fish, hunt and gather food. I’ve also enjoyied a spot of wild bothy camping in the lakes and sitting around a fire sipping a whiskey and sharing tales has been a great experience. We are back in York now and I really need to get out and about into the country again. I’d also love to have a go at fly fishing someday. Maybe we could share a tune or two on the banks of a river sometime? O and a wee dram of course!
All the best Tom
Tom, thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. It’s really great to know that you ‘get’ the sentiment of this project, I hope you enjoy the upcoming posts. It would be great to hear about your travels, play some tunes and certainly share a dram or two sometime!
Good luck with this venture Adam. Look forward to keeping up to date with it. As I said on FB, what about a paragraph or two (or more!) on catching that 4 lb perch? I could also use it in a chapter I’m doing for a new book.
Steve, thanks very much – I’m really excited about this venture. It would be great to collaborate on some articles, not least because it’s an excuse to get ‘Team Pike’ together more often!
