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.

Welcome to a new year - it begins again.

Well, not enough fishing done over the last week and some great fish caught by anglers who got out.  Trips on the Derwent and Soar after barbel were no good for me and the rest of the time I was putting up dad’s Xmas present – bit of fun on my own but I got there taking nearly three days.
 There would have been a picture here of the assembled greenhouse but Blogger in their wisdom have changed the photo upload system and I cannot figure out how to get the photo from My Documents onto here.

The same as facebook why change what is working perfactly well - no photos until I get it figured out.

Well pleased with the result and hopefully it will produce lots of veg over the coming years and give pleasure at the same time.  I’ll get back to fish though it looks like the temps are going to fall again.  Once settled perhaps the big chub and perch will oblige, I need to catch a few good fish since it’s been a while since I had a fish worth weighing.

Of to the river for a big chub -I hope!

  1. Phil, download Picasa at — http://picasa.google.com/ — and upload your pictures to Picasa web albums that comes with the Google account on Google Drive. Then, insert pics from there by clicking on 'insert image' on the blogger toolbar above the posts, and it'll do it all for you.

    The only trouble is they've changed that too and now the pics seem to arrive always at the top of the post in my browser. To get round this, click on the image, copy, delete, and then paste it where you want it by clicking the cursor there. I hate it when they fix what ain't broke but they do it regularly
