OK then, here is a fish identification one to keep us going until Peter gets back..... which fish can move each of its eyes separately, it can have one eye looking the way it's going and one where it's been :?

Bloody good answer Jim and although it's pretty much correct it's not the fish I had in mind.

Hi H,

Not sure if it's a fish, but a Sea Horse can look both ways.

"Catching salmon is a misnomer. The angler does not seek to catch his quarry. The essence of fishing as a sport is that the fisherman delibrately denies himself any and every means of trapping, snaring or netting an unwilling prey into his basket. He sets himself a set of rules which effectively denies him the right to catch a fish and which ensures that success can be arrived at only when the fish catches the angler. The moment there is any deviation from this basic principle then the angler is not fishing - he is poaching."

- who wrote this?
- what is the title of the book?

Here's a hint: the man in question is well known for the special way he tied his salmon flies.

Jerome,

No idea on the title of the book.
