Les is a Church of England minister who lives in South West England, surrounded by salmon fishing (which he can't afford) and river fishing for small trout, which he attempts to catch with a tiny brook rod.
The Devon coastline also has Sea Bass which provide him with hours of pleasure while his wife, Nan, walks the dog along the beach. When the dog and Les are at home, he clips hair off the dog to tie salt-water shrimp flies...
He is looking forward to teaching his grandchildren to flyfish, and trying to catch mullet on fly.
