    1. Gervase Wemyss is a man of dry-fly angling and drier wit, with a gift for rural elegy. I'm glad to know him, always eager to read him, and proud to be his publishing partner. These gently witty essays on his eccentric neighbours and the eternal countryside verities are a dang good example of why that's so.
