At the party last night Martin Salter had recommended that when doing my ice fishing I add a feather earring to the bait to attract fish. I had laughed it off and yet this morning I found myself in M&S, having been drawn to the earrings display.
It probably wouldn't work, a friend of mine pointed out. The fish in the artic are not likely to have wide experience of insects - so fly fishing is probably not the technique.
Still may have a look for some at the airport - you never know... what harm could it do?
