Encountering fish, flows, and waterscapes through angling
AbstractThis paper examines the material intertwinings of fish and water. It discusses how the presence of water and fish is simultaneously material and immaterial and examines how the processes and tensions between narratives of fish and water are caught up and inform human encounters with waterscapes. In particular, the paper does three things: first, it highlights the tensions between the angling literature and the practices and performances of angling. Second, it examines how fish embody the material and imaginative aspects of waterscapes, highlighting how fish are shaped to fit in or adapt to ‘environmental quality’ and human expectations. Third, it examines how water may be thought through as ‘fishy’ as made animate by the creatures that dwell there.
