Lost and Found
Found on the doormat this morning, a parcel containing a book posted to me by the writer and broadcaster Jude Rogers , 'The Young Angler's Companion' by the late Clive Gammon, published in 1962 by Souvenir Press. Jude found the book in an attic where it had not seen the light of day for over three decades. After several scrambled messages between us it turned out the book was not part of a larger hoard. It arrived with the note, 'A decent substitute for tackle, I hope'. In truth, there is no substitute for Clive Gammon, nor for the kindness of people who find things in attics.
