A Brush with Rivers – Reflections on Angling and Painting

by Tim Scott Bolton

Tim Scott Bolton has, from an early age, with both rod and paint box, mucked about in, on or beside water.

In A Brush with Rivers, he visits Kenya, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Ireland and Russia – but most of the waters covered are the glorious salmon rivers of Scotland and the crystal-clear chalk streams of southern England. 

Now in his reflective mid 70s, Tim has brought together fifty years of memoirs, largely from diaries, and the anecdotes and quotes of others, to create a fascinating and wide-ranging book, delightfully illustrated by his oils and watercolours. The river plans of a number of salmon rivers he has created over the years are also included and the resulting book is both a good read and something of beauty.

A large collection of original paintings featured in the book are on sale here.
