Keith Arthur was born in Holloway, North London, in 1946. He started fishing at an early age and it has remained his passion ever since. Keith worked in the fishing tackle industry for 20 years before becoming the resident expert on Sky Sports' Tight Lines angling programme in 1995. He accepted the role of Tight Lines presenter in 2004 and continues this role to date. Since 1999 Keith has also presented Fisherman's Blues, the UK's only fishing show on national radio on talkSPORT. Keith has written several specialist angling titles since 1980 and has produced his own column in Angling Times since 1990. He has fished in many countries for a wide variety of species of fish. Now living with his wife Susan close to his beloved River Thames, Keith still spends as much of his time as possible loafing in the countryside and this is the subject of his much anticipated first book. Fishing: The Best Excuse for Loafing in the Countryside is Keith's angling memoirs and is jam-packed full of his memories and tales of his angling career and childhood memories. A must for fishermen of any age!

Every angler that ever cast a line has an idyll. Whether that is casting for wild trout in a pristine Irish stream, waiting for the attack of a giant blue marlin in the Indian Ocean or catching gudgeon from a river in an English town centre, they will be lost in the moment. Keith Arthur describes that ‘being lost’ under the general heading of loafing in the countryside and in this book he describes how he has loafed through better than half-a-century since growing up in North London and being adopted as a television and radio presenter. From the mysteries of early captures through to battles with giant sharks this book follows him through some glorious and, occasionally, hilarious times. If you are an angler you will recognise yourself somewhere in these pages. If you are not, then maybe you will want to be after reading them.
