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.

Rain at last - barbel fishing could be interesting.

At long last we seem to be getting rain in sufficient quantities to get the rivers to rise.  This is of course what we have been waiting for, but initially a problem can occure with all that summer rubbish and weed building up, and now coming down on the high water created by the rain.  Still, I have been stuck in the house having a new central heating system installed - it went down with a fatal fault last winter - and I now need to get out again, I think a trip to the Warwickshire Avon might clear the head this afternoon.

The book is progressing well with just under half the leatherbound copies ordered and a fair number of the standard editions paid for and just waiting delivery.  All the work has been completed at the print works with proofs checked and signed off, just waiting for my print run slot to appear on their schedule.  Still on course for delivery and dispatch to me the second week of September, I'll get all pre-ordered books out immediately, and then the book launch at the Land's End Pub at Twyford,  Berks, on the 17th September. 

Having only recently got involved in writing this blog I am now in the process on generating a web page, interesting times and something more suited to a youger generation.  I've got the domain name sorted philsmithangling.co.uk but it will not be opperative for a few weeks yet.  Let you know when it is finely up and running.
