Having not been fishing since November - that's nearly six months, even by my poor maths - I feel pale and depressed. I'm richer than I was* by dint of all this flamin' work, but I haven't been to the bank, except for a walk. But the book, the book. It's nearly out. You can find it listed on Amazon. They've done a great job. The Australian edition is prefaced by Bonita Brown, the English edition by no-one.
Finally after - literally - years of trying, I've had a proper paid-for article accepted by Waterlog, the world's most peculiar fishing magazine. Should you be inclined to seek it out, it's in the Spring 2006 edition, somewhere near the back, and it's called Ray and the Needle.
