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.

Phil Smith just keep trying.

A day on the Warwickshire Avon resulted in yet another blank - 5 trips for one fish although that was a 12lb-1oz double.  The previous day on the little River Arrow had me looking for water that was actually moving, not much of that about on this river.  I finally chose a spot where a bullrush bed had taken over 2/3rds of the river and the stream that was left did move all be it at a snail's pace.  A few hours half hearted effort did result in a 5lb barbel, always better than a blank.

Up to the River Severn tomorrow with Merv for our first try for the zander, that will be one of my main targets this Autumn so here's hoping for a result, but whatever happens - I'll keep on trying!
