Martin Thorne

Martin loves Fly-fishing. He is a member of an exclusive lakeside club and often used to bring me home a fresh Trout. So fresh, from hook to pan 1 hour. Unfortunately Martin lost the use of his right arm and so can no longer cast. No more fish! :( but I am very please to hear he is still alive. We have spent a lot of time talking over the farm gate and on this bench. Martin has been a farmer all his life, sadly he has worn his body out, literally, but he still gets up at 5 in the morning to walk his dog Gough.photo
