AR has lots of interesting knowledge tucked into his books.

I was reading Vernon Coleman's Doctor books, and Thumper is arrested by the Water Bailiff for ticking fish in Devon.

When did it become illegal, why would anyone say this is illegal -- man against fish -- is there no fun anymore.

Interestingly Coleman mentions Buchan, but not AR. No real kids in his books.

He is not as good as AR - funny but not AR's hidden humour, nor his writing skills although they both wrote for the Guardian.
