More About the Author

Prior to becoming an author, I spent over 30 years in manufacturing. During the latter years of that career I was an operations manager in a factory that made electricity meters. To some that may not seem very exciting, but it provided me with a great buzz. The never ending process of target achievement was at times very stressful, but the friendship I had with my collegues made the whole thing worthwhile.

In 2003, an opportunity presented itself that allowed me to change careers and I set myself up as a freelance writer. I wrote articles and short stories for magazines and contributed web content and photos to websites. However, I always wanted to write books and, after winning a prestigious short story competition, I started writing books.

When it comes to hobbies, I enjoy doing a bit of pyrography and some watercolour painting, but my greatest love has always been fishing. I guess that is why the first book I ever published was about angling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Un-put-downable!! 26 Sept. 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As the title says, this is packed full of tips and often hilarious tales. I,m a regular pleasure fisherman and his observations are absolutely spot-on.Its like he,s describing me when he mentions a lot of bad habits and practices. What makes it funnier is that he knows that many people like me are just too idle or set in our ways to adjust. I will, however, be taking on board quite a few things he said-especially when it comes to loose feeding and when to try new baits. The book will improve my fishing in many ways. Apart from the content what really comes across is the authors character and personality which make the book extremely enjoyable. If your just beginning fishing or a seasoned campaigner you will find this book at the very least entertaining and very probably extremely informative.

Great first fishing book.
I wanted a simple insight to begin fishing and this book gives you straight forward I formation to open up some of the mysteries.
Some good humour in the tales too so it made reading and learning enjoyable and a good beginning.
Can't wait to get some tackle and try out the many tips contained here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant 30 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I came across these downloads by accident, and I nearly did not download because I thought the actual book would be better. How wrong can you be, great read, could not put it down. Story keeps you wanting to know how the plot is developing. Detectives and fishing, heaven, you might even pick up the odd fishing tip. I am downloading everything George F Mason has done. Believable and witty, I want to be in the team. Or at least go fishing with Fred Tench.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent advice for the novice 1 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am still a novice at coarse angling making the mistakes that self-taught anglers make. Reading this book has highlighted a several areas where I was going wrong and I have no reservation in recommending this book for novices like myself. The advice is like having an older relative sat next to you on the bank side pointing you in the right direction. Well written and well worth a read.
