You could get another chance to buy one, mario?

I've donated the very last one (no 20) to Marsh Pratley's, "Children with Cancer charity", for auction this coming Sept.

(With the narrowed audience you may get a bargain face)

Its THE best pike fishing book that i have read, hands down. I managed to get a copy at one of Daves PAC talks the year it was released :thumbs:

Pages and pages of amazing captures and endless experience shared accross the chapters.

Dave
Would it be possible for you to remind us of the auction in September please
I wouldn’t mind a little punt at that myself ( or a big punt if she lets me )
A great charity
And as I have said before a lovely gesture from yourself

The fund raising event will be held at Orchid lakes on Sept 21st - 23rd this year Happy!

I won't be there myself but I'll arrange delivery of the book either prior to setting off on holiday or direct to the highest bidder upon my return.

(Good luck face)

Dave,
It's one hell of a book, as a reader you just don't want to put it down. Just been out in the garden reading Nick Peats section, boy is he driven.
Good luck with the retirement, I bet your looking forward to that.

Would you ever consider putting another book together Dave or is it too much risk nowadays? I definately think that there was a market for it :thumbs:

I have mixed feelings about retirement to be honest, Paul?

Sometimes I think I'm ready and others I know I'm not?

Today I held the hand of a bedridden bariatric lady who's dilapidated static home was burning down around her, because she could not be moved quickly or safely enough! I know, WE saved her life and I felt I made a difference, I'm not sure where else I'm gonna find that and I still enjoy my job.

(I'm considering a part time role - to ease myself into retirement face)

With retirement looming and more time on my hands, I'd certainly give it some thought, Adam?

I think I was fortunate with the timing of Ultimate Pike - it was relatively easy to get the material together and it made a few quid too.

(I'm not sure either would happen these days face)

A book just about the 30’s might be a good seller
Dependant whether you could tell the story about each one without giving locations away etc
