• $1m prize for fishing couple

    by  • February 5, 2013 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    A couple who bought a couple of lottery tickets on the day they went fishing came home with quite a catch – a $1m winning ticket. And the other ticket netted them a $50,000 prize! Stephen and Terri Weaver stopped to buy a ticket at a convenience store in Pangburn, Arkansas, before they went fishing. On the way home, stopped at the store and bought another ticket. The first ticket turned out to be a $1m winner, while the second was worth big money too. It’s not known if they caught any fish. Still, they’ve got enough to buy and stock their own lake now.

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 chairman of The Mahseer Trust.
