Bruce Sandison confesses to being one of Britain's best-known purveyors of angling lies. His book The Trout Lochs of Scotland is described by his son as being "the finest work of angling fiction ever written". He is the author of several books on game fishing, travel, Scottish history and the environment, and he has been the Aberdeen Press & Journal's angling correspondent for nine years. He claims his most significant achievement is the ability to tie a bloodknot in under ten seconds; a skill he says he has acquired through teaching handless members of his tribe to fish. Bruce lives in the village of Tongue in North Scotland.
