Jon Berry lives with his partner Victoria in an ancient Wiltshire cottage, 20 yards from a pub and within casting distance of the River Avon. When not teaching in a large secondary school, he is an irregular contributor to Waterlog magazine and caughtbytheriver.net. Beneath the Black Water is his second book.
"Beneath the Black Water is the wonderful account of a mad,
disrupting, unforgiving but ultimately joyous addiction - an
addiction not just to the ferox, but to the truly wild waterscapes
they inhabit. No fellow angler could be unimpressed; no ordinary
human will quite believe it." -- Chris Yates
"This quest for a sense of belonging comes with dreams of great fishes. Mr Berry has written a beautiful, haunted poem of friendship and obsession." -- Jeff Barrett * Caught By the River *
