• Top anglers tell tales of Zyg’s paradise

    by  • November 3, 2012 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    Many well-known anglers have fished at Angler’s Paradise, the Devon holiday resort run by the colourful Zyg Gregorek. He’s now publishing a book about him and his impressive fishery, which he built himself. The book includes contributions by Rod Hutchinson, Peter Mohan, Keith Arthur, Bob Roberts, Des Taylor, Jason Cann, Len Gurd and Rob Maylin, and it is being published by The Little Egret Press. It costs £28.95, with royalties donated to a charity nominated by Zyg.


    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.
