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.

Foreign Pastures.

Well the day has finally arrived and within a few hours I'll be leaving Coventry to go down to Bicester ready for a very early start for the airport tomorrow morning.  Destination, the big rivers of Guyana in South America.

Target fish are many and varied but big catfish of various species, redtails being perhaps the prettiest.  Every fish will be a pb so it could be interesting.  From onzes to hundreds of pounds all will be an experience.  Of course being in wild jungle very far from any civilisation will hopefully give the chance to see some quite exotic wildlife and birds, looking foreward to that as well.

Just as a sample of the fish I hope for here are fish caught on a previous trip to the same area.

I'll be back on the 19th March and hopefully there will be a blog or two about the trip.  Tight lines to all who venture out for the last few weeks of the season, I'll have you on my mind as well - these might be big fish, but a 7lb+ chub or 15lb+ barbel would go down just as nicely.
