Salmon Fishing in the Yemen – the book


Paul Torday – Salmon Fishing in the Yemen

Some ebooks you simply cannot buy if you live outside the USA, Some software arrangement between publishers and the likes of Amazon. Which means if I do not buy the hard cover I and many others will not get to read the book, simple as that.

But I have bought and paid good money for a Kindle and I prefer to read on this device.

Sounds pretty unfair to me.

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen was one of those books (I have described it in a previous blog). So if you have the same predicament as I have here is a link to the book.


Salmon Fishing in the Yemen


is in my box of videos and I will hopefully watch this tomorrow or is it already today?

As with a book I like a short summary of a movie too which I found on http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1441952/

But of course the fact that Ewan McGregor stars in it makes it more attractive. I saw him in an interview with Charlie Rose (and so by the way if I could choose who I would like to have dinner with it would be Charlie Rose. is there maybe a competition where this is the prize, please let me know.What a fascinating man. )

A visionary sheik believes his passion for the peaceful pastime of salmon fishing can enrich the lives of his people, and he dreams of bringing the sport to the not so fish-friendly desert. Willing to spare no expense, he instructs his representative to turn the dream into reality, an extraordinary feat that will require the involvement of Britain’s leading fisheries expert who happens to think the project both absurd and unachievable. That is, until the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary latches on to it as a ‘good will’ story. Now, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.
