“Redmire: unique, historic, enchanted… Redmire: just two short syllables, but what a stirring effect they have had in angling circles for so very long! Succinctly and appropriately coined by one of its most famous sons (‘BB’) in order to disguise its location and preserve its exclusivity, not only do they call to mind a place and time but also something even more remarkable than that. For from that simple but evocative name have come associations with an angling ‘nirvana’ where unattainable dreams came true; where magic and mystery at times merged; where history was written not once, but three times. All true, and all at one small pool, half-hidden, and half-tucked away amongst the folds of rural Herefordshire. What a remarkable accolade; what a remarkable legacy…’”
