Izaak Walton's Complete Angler described the adventures of two
anglers and has dourned book shelves for over 400 years. After being
commissioned in 1983 to make the Izaak Walton Foundation Collection of
Fly Fishing Rods as a Master Rod Maker and Craftsman noted at the time
in Tony Pawson's (World Champion 1982) Book "Competitive Fly Fishing"
as the best in the industry Internationally. It appealed to me to write
a more modern day classical book for anglers to enjoy whilst at the
water's edge, covering the noble and time honoured pastime of angling
and rod making.
Complete Angler and Master Rodmaker takes you on a journey of
venues through Britain for Coarse, Fly and Sea Angling, spanning 50
years as a fisherman. Also discussing the rods I made and the tackle,
in addition to notable places celebrating the Coastlines and
Countryside of Britain.
This publication will not just be a book of reference, but crafted as a
diary and encompassing all the seasons of where to fish, making tackle,
finding bait and more. In the hope to create the nostalgic atmosphere
similar to earlier writings dating back over history and discussing
with you as the companion book owner, the ventures and the very many
old and new techniques over time, where I caught "many a fine fellow"
on memorable days in blighty and ate well.
I will also introduce you to the many characters on my journey through
life angling and many well known, who all had a passion for the art of
piscatorial pastimes at the water's edge, or colleagues of notoriety
who shared my profession in secluded workshops, crafting ones wares for
appreciative followers of the angle. More

I hope that the past World Cup held in Brazil and forth coming one to be held in Russia will serve as an inspiration to the countless millions of young Boys, Girls, and Adult Players, wanting to improve their Technical Game of Football. It was back in 1970 I saw my first World Cup proper in Mexico, and where I was blessed with seeing a timeless piece of sporting history, as I watched the Great Pele mesmerize his opponents and saw the Greatest Goalkeeper of all time, Gordon Banks. Having taught Football and played the game myself, and really understanding the technical aspects of football from years of study and watching. And also being fortunate and blessed, to be taught by the very best myself, my first Coach being Tony Bentley of Stoke City a Gordon Banks playing partner and team mate. Also Peter Taylor, former England Manager, who also endorsed my work and endeavours, especially setting up Junior Football for the Community I truly hope this book will greatly help every Footballer improve their technical skills from non-league junior football, through to professional and international level, and from just a few hours reading, makes an enormous contribution in making far better players, domestically and internationally.

Climate Change and conservation for me started over 50 years ago. In
fact, in the introduction of my first published book in 1989, I warned
of Climate Change and Deforestation. So as a Marine Biologist and
Ichthyologist, starting my apprenticeship at the waters edge at just 7
years of age, this book has something to say.
I hope you grab a copy of the book to gauge what is really going on,
and how our lives are being affected now. Many of the views and reports
today being aired surrounding climate change by the United Nations,
Governments, and Institutions, can very often seem distant issues and
have no bearing, or relevance, to folks real lives.
To most folk 40 to 50 years ago "climate change" was probably not on anyone's radar. However, even back in the 1960's and 1970's there did exist signs of change then, and not for the better.
