Coming up at auction

This 24in x 16in lithograph by the hugely popular Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) entitled Three Boys Fishing (though not very seriously) comes up at the Californian group Windsor Auction House on October 13.




Now that’s a REALLY old fish…This Graeco-Roman mummified fish from Egypt comes up for sale at Ancient Resource Auctions on October 6. It’s dated 3rd-1st century BC. Hard to sell how nice that would look on the mantelpiece to the wife…

Editor and publisher of Classic Angling magazine. Founder member of UK Angling Writers' Association and current chairman. Former winner of Writer of the Year. I wrote a weekly angling column for The Independent for 23 years, having previously written columns for The Guardian and Sunday Mirror. If it swims, I'll fish for it: marlin or mackerel, trout or tench, salmon or snook. I've written several books on fishing, from one for the Duke of Edinburgh's award to the notorious Catchmore Sharks (don't look at the pictures) and Bob Nudd's autobiography, How to be the World's Best Fisherman. I love exotic travel for fishing (been to Mongolia and Ecuador, the Great Barrier Reef and Arunachal Pradesh) and wish I could afford to do such trips more often. My favourite fish? Anything with fins, though I have a special love for mahseer, and I’m Founder and former Chairman of the Masher Trust.
