I caught up with Howard Thresher at the tackle shop he runs in Crediton, Devon.

I've known him quite a few years now and I really wanted listeners to hear the story of a river that was completely fished out until he was lucky enough to buy the fishing rights and nurse it back to health. It now holds some pretty special fish.

We also get an intimate insight into how he runs a tackle shop, known locally as the sweet shop, a little differently from the norm.
 
You'll learn how he stumbled into the industry almost by accident but used his skills in other areas to make the business a success.

I really enjoyed talking with Howard and hope you'll enjoy our conversation just as much.
