This is an SOS – I’ve lost my priest, and it’s my favourite, I’ve had it 25 years. It’s a staghorn priest, quite slender, with a bit of string tied through the hole in the end – if only I had tied it to me!

I lost it on the upper water at the Poundbury section, at that straight bit of river that occurs about 200 yards before it goes into the ‘Withy Bed’ dog leg. I think it might be not far from the place where you climb over the fence there, probably about 30 yards downstream of that. That was when I last used it anyway, to dispatch a lovely fat stockie.

Many Thanks
