    This superb golden orfe mounted by the London taxidermist William Homer is one of more than 100 quality cased fish that are for sale at Fisherman’s Emporium, a shop-cum-museum run by collector and angling enthuisiast John Farey. The 3lb 2oz orfe, caught from Virginia Water in 1937, is one of the rarest cased fish you will see, but John also has cased gudgeon, lamprey, bleak and even ballan wrasse. All the cases are for sale. You can also buy rods, reels, paintings and a superb collection of rare and leather-bound books. The emporium is at Craycombe, just outside Evesham, and you can view the fish on his website here.

     

    About

    Editor and publisher of Classic Angling magazine. Founder member of UK Angling Writers' Association and current chairman. Former winner of Writer of the Year. 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.
