An Antidote to Indifference

Founded over beers in the summer of 2007, Caught by the River aims to document three friends' (and their friends') obsessions with British angling, waterways, books, records, movies, and pubs.

More recently, birds, urban nature, and a strong thread of post-punk antiquarianism have crept in, some very interesting and under-the-radar writers have come on board, and CbTR has expanded to include a press, a record label, a zine, a small shop, a podcast, and a "social club".

A few places to jump in:

This reminds me a bit of the wonderful and quintessentially British humorous Victorian river travelogue Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome

I'm so glad you posted this. I had the preliminary links to do it myself but it got back burnered. CBTR has the first genuinely novel views of the countryside I've seen in years.
