In 2007 Chris McCully, whose roots are in Yorkshire, relocated to the het Hogeland region of the Netherlands. A lifelong angler, he fishes to find his way into the life and landscape of his new home. His fishing-rods , ostensibly there to catch ...
fish, become divining-rods: they are a way of reacting, fathoming, exploring and understanding. In this series of essays and reflections he writes about sea-weeds, about freshwater mussels, about winter starlight, geese, wigeon, small boys catching frogs and exiled Irish noblemen. He writes about forgotten cloisters, coats-of-arms; about ice; about subtlety and owl-holes in barns ...And above all he writes about displacement, loneliness, and about 'not fitting in' - about being Outside.
