One Last Cast by Peter Rolfe

You can find the Chapter Headings here, where you will see the kind of line drawings that ought to illustrate all proper fishing books...

I hope to be there. As for illustrations, having written half a dozen books, whilst ideally one would have wonderful line drawings other considerations play a part; there are few angling illustrators around, some will charge a great deal of money making a book uneconomic to produce (books are economics in a nutshell) and line drawings aren't always the ideal type of illustration for a book. When I first mooted my roach book way back in 2000 John Searl quoted me around £2000 to £3000 for illustrations. Someone like Roger McPhail who illustrated A Passion for Angling would likely charge a great deal more. Ironically when I was taking photographs for my pole fishing book I got talking to a pole angler who asked why I was taking photos and it turned out he'd illustrated Ivan Marks' book on floatfishing as the publisher wanted better drawings than the ones in Ivan's first book which had been done by the art teacher from the school where John Goodwin was headmaster.

Be good to see you Daceace. I agree, the cost of such drawings is not trivial!

Oh no... I've just got back from playing at a musical event in the village, at which I had my arm twisted to play on the 7th December... Fingers crossed I might just have time to get to Shaftesbury and back, having picked up my copy of Peter's book. I always enjoy Peter's book launches, and it will be wrench to leave early. But better a short visit than none at all!

Fatty could not make it to the launch of this book, as Matron :text-scary: was too busy scaring the locals but would be interested in purchasing a copy from Peter.

If any one out there in interwb world knows if this is possible or books are still available or sold out The Mole, for it is he, would be very grateful :text-hat-tip:

Many thanks Weyfarer and JAA......got a signed copy in my paws.

At least will have something to read whilst the relatives of Matron :text-scary: re-enact the Battle of the Bulge in our living room in between scoffing all my scran and drinking all my slurping tea and alcohol.....they won't go until the lot is gone! :text-givebeer:

Every year; every bloody year :xmas-holly:

Fatty does not like the Festering Season, Bah Humbug! :text-dratdrat:
