Jungle Blues

Jungle Blues

Paul Arden | Monday, 4 May 2020

As many of you will recall Stu Tripney visited me in the jungle, for an extended Snakehead and Gourami visit, the summer before last. While he was here, over campfires, Stu talked about writing a book, or indeed many books. Now everyone talks about writing a book, but in Stu’s case he has actually since written it and “Jungle Blues” is due out very soon!

I haven’t read it in its complete form yet, instead Stu has been sending me short “teasers” on a fairly regular basis. What I can say from these, is that I think that this book is going to be absolutely hilarious and I can’t wait to read it! Stu is tremendously fun in person and from all the teasers I can see that this comes across in his writing as well - so I can’t wait!

I’m back on my Battleship. The authorities have some weird emerging-out-of-lockdown rule where we anglers can bank fish but not boat fish! I assume that this is because they think of boat fishing as being a purely social affair and not something you can do alone in isolation. So obviously they’ve made a mistake! I suppose I could drive my boat around, see a fish, jump out to the bank and fish from the shore... That sounds like fun!

In the shop you can now find the HT7 and HT7 Instructor rods. Drop me an email to find out more about these or our other rods. You can reach me on paul@sexyloops.com 

Have a great week!

Cheers, Paul
