It's a doorstop (536 pages 10 inches by eight) and so I'm only about a quarter of the way through. So far I'm really enjoying it and can thoroughly recommend it. It's an honest tome and he readily admits to some of faults in earlier years but I prefer that to someone who tells you their f*rts don't smell! It's unique in that there are extracts from his diary that interlace the stories that record 'the moment'. It's printed on black paper with white text which gives it a different feel.

So far, the stories have me gripped. It's not a collection of pictures of rigs that some books appear to be. Although he does mention what rigs he had used to catch certain fish, it's only for completeness. There are plenty of quality photo's as you would expect that don't over intrude.

Some parts of the book are part autobiographical and don't particularly relate to fishing but I still enjoyed reading it. It helps to give the full picture and see where he came from and to a degree, where he's going.

It also differs slightly in that the stories aren't sequential but that doesn't really matter. You could just read every chapter as a stand alone piece. I suppose the term 'fireside reading' sums up when I've read so far.

Not cheap at the best part of £40 (with postage) but it is written by a master story teller and may turn into a classic.

Anyone had a chance to read this yet. And would care to offer up an opinion on it.
