Very interesting observation about the drop in subscriptions for "Fair Cops", going some way to proving that we are less keen on AR the angler. Does the film have the fishing episode at all? If we AR enthusiasts hope that children will be encouraged to sail after seeing the film and, more importantly, reading the book(s), would we hope they took up fishing too? Probably not. There might well be modern concerns about a child alone on a river bank for hours at a time. Still I feel that something would be missing from the total AR experience.
I agree that some of his fishing articles have been a good read for this non-angler too but, likewise, not the statistics.
I'm not clear though, Alan. Are you ardent in not fishing or armchair fishing?
