Fly fishing on the river Usk

The Salisbury Short Story Prize 2019 shortlist was announced today. Story length for the competition was 500 words – quite a challenge of you are not, like me, used to writing much flash fiction. Pleased to say that I am one of the six named on the shortlist.

The theme was ‘Rivers’ which was fortunate as I was already working on a fly fishing story – set on the river Usk.


I have been researching the subject for awhile including chatting to a female friend who is a fly fisherman (she uses that term) and also watching the Whitehouse and Mortimer fishing series set on a different river each episode – including the Usk. Talk about synchronicity.
