When two bodies are discovered by the side of a fishing stream, Barnaby and Troy have yet more murders to solve. Isobel Hewitt had a zest for life that some can only hope for. She loves to drive her red Jaguar at top speed and generally enjoyed the finer things in life. Although loved by many, there were those who weren't quite so charmed by her. Margaret Seagrove was convinced that she was the member of the local fishing club using weighted lures in the local stream. Her nephew and his wife, with whom she resided, saw her as a burden now that she had spent most of her accumulated capital. The second victim is the local doctor, Duncan Goff, a well-known philanderer who had affairs with many of the local ladies. The police must first determine if both were intended victims or if one was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Weighted lures and mad fly casters lurk amongst Midsomer Fly Fishers and their watering hole, The Old Fisherman pub. When two of the members are found, belly up, in a local stream, DCI Barnaby and DS Troy have to cast a very wide net...to hook a murderer.
While the local fly fishing club is worried that weighted lines placed in their section of the river will mean the revocation of their charter, murder pushes the worry aside for a while. Two local fishers have been clubbed to death at the river. Barnaby and Troy set out to unravel the mystery -- which was the intended victim and which might have been killed for witnessing the crime? Was money a prime motive? Or the infidelity of one of the victims? Or was the murderer just out for revenge? Or was the poaching of fish in the river behind the deed?
Something is fishy about the clubbing deaths of two local residents.
