  8. The Tug is the Drug
    £15.95
    2017-05-24 00:00:00

    Thirty seven stories take readers from leaping makos near the fairways of Torrey Pines to midnight Atlantic salmon fishing on the fabled Ponoi to encounters with very friendly mujeres on the streets of Havana . . . and even offer an unauthorised (yet unequivocal) account of Bob Dylan’s 1970s obsession with fishing. Santella’s peripatetic lifestyle and eye for entertaining details – even those that have little to do with the act of throwing flies at fish – will make one look at fishing in a whole different way.
