A NEW BOOK NOW OUT. Targets set and achieved.

My third book, 'Targets set and achieved' is now complete and ready for sale. As the title suggests it reflects the past seven years of my fishing. Twenty different rivers where double figure barbel were caught, crucians and roach to near record size, perch, chub, tench and bream to make the mouth water. All will be in the pages and well illustrated with lots of colour photographs.

There is a 1000 copy print run of the hardback edition and a further 40 leather bound copies for the connoisseur.

Copies available from myself just email phlpsmith9@aol.com or ring 07980 394864 for details

Still a limited number of leathers available.

Alternatively use the web page http://www.philsmithangler.co.uk/ where you can order by Paypal or credit/debit card.

sturgeon and bream

Tried the canal for one of those silver bream yesterday with Merv.  Saw more than one barge go through with all those holiday craft cruising about, still, we caught two bream apiece but they were all bronze.  Better luck next time.

Today a visit to the osteopath was followed by a quick visit to the local sturgeon lake.  Merv and his grandson, Curtis, were already fishing and Curtis had increased his pb for the species to 25lb-9oz.

                                                            Curtis Welch with 25lb-9oz pb.

Merv took a sturgeon of 17lb odd and I had a mirror carp of about 14lb on a slice of salmon, not the target species but better than a blank.   Back to barbel tomorrow - let you know the result.
