Logo for the fantastic blog and more, Caught By the River
Caught By The River was born on a bankside a little over two years back during an idle day’s casting. The idea – a website that would document lazy days out – became a reality a few months afterwards. Without a great deal of nurturing, it soon grew into a place that people could eulogize about the things that made the working week bearable – books, records, art, nature, angling, drinking, even cake baking. The approach was exactly like putting together a fanzine – an unshackled, uncynical torrent of enthusiasm. Here was our modern take on something hardwired in as part of punk rock culture, only this time the patron saints were Roger Deakin, Chris Yates and Chris Watson rather than Joe and Sid; the sound of razored guitar strings replaced by bird song and the gentle plonk as the float hits the water.
