Well and Truly Hooked

Discussion in 'Other Species Fishing' started by Terry Theobald, May 16, 2010.

  1. Well, after three to four years and many endless hours of writing, editing, throwing away, writing, editing and worrying I have finally got to the point where my attempt at penning an angling book has been published.

    It takes you on a journey through my angling life, from the Norfolk Broads to Frampton Court and on to the river Kennet as well as many other wonderful rivers and lakes.

    I can't quite believe I have actually done it and when I saw the book and held it for the first time it was a wonderful surreal moment and worth every second of the time it took to put together.

    If anyone would like to purchase the book you can get it from www.calmproductions.com

    If you do buy it I thank you very much and hope you get some enjoyment from reading it.

    all the best

  7. It would be a pleasure luke although I haven't been on the kennet for a while owing to work in northern areas. Been working in Tring this week though and managed a couple of tench out of startops which I am over the moon about.

    I hope you like the book and thanks for buying it.

  11. sorry Nige, I promise to buy half a pint off you the next time I am down ha ha!
    I have had some wonderful messages complementing me on my writing attempt and I haven't had one negative remark yet which is a relief.
    thanks for buying a copy and making it all worthwhile
