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.

Still a limited number of leathers available.

Good sport again

Red eyed  green monster

Folowing the blank of tuesday I returned thinking I cannot let it go at that.  Well I didn't, but almost, just one small male saved the blank.  Yesterday I went to another local venue and arriving at 2pm was surprised to see I was alone.  I dropped into the swim and spodded out a load of hemp using the new Spomb.  If you have not got one of these then I would suggest you do without delay, right on the mark without any particle loss.  It seemed ages without any action and in fact it was well after 6pm before I caught but then they came quite steadily.  Five fish landed and one dropped to give a pleasing result and the bigger samples certainly did pull the string.

                                                   They certainly can pull at this size.

  1. Lovely tench Phil, very nice average stamp as well. I have also been very impressed with the spomb. I prefer it by far to a spod as I feel not only is it more acurrate and does not dribble bait, but it also does not dive into the water as far as a spod. Which when fish clear, relitvely shallo water is a big plus. Tight Lines Andy
