Always nice to get a letter from a happy reader - this time from someone who got 101 Golden Rules of Fishing as a Christmas present. I'll let them take up the story.
My new book, 101 Golden Rules Of Fishing got its first review last week on the Fishing Magic web site. Graham Marsden (who's written more than a few words in his time and probably caught more fish) was very generous and gave it eight out of ten - even though it was clear there were things in it he neither cared for, nor agreed with. Sadly the review is no longer online, so you'll just have to take my word for it. Angler's honour and all that.
The book is out. The publishers have been in touch. I may have to - gulp - promote it. I'm ready, I tell you, or I will be after I've finished this glass of rose wine. Now there's a drink for an angler. Neither one thing nor the other, neither fish...
Apologies for the silence. I've not been you see because I've been busy doing other things. Fortunately, these things are also to do with fishing. In fact, they're completely to do with fishing. In fact, they're a book about fishing.
