More About the Author

I was born in Oxford in 1959, but spent most of my childhood further north in the West Midlands. I am currently based in Devon in the south west of England, but still have a particular fondness for the Warwickshire and Worcestershire countryside.

I became interested in nature at a young age and spent a lot of my free time and holidays out in the fresh air walking and fishing with friends. I've lived, worked, walked and fished over many parts of Britain and that early interest has developed into a fascination for the natural world.

As well as writing, I collect and restore vintage fishing tackle. I like to fish with cane rods, centrepin reels and quill floats and when I'm not writing I like nothing more than to spend a few hours on a country stream fishing and watching birds, butterflies, and other wild creatures in their natural environment.

I've been an angler most of my life, so it seemed only natural that the subjects of my first books would be coarse and fly fishing and the making and restoration of traditional fishing tackle.

My interest in the natural world goes beyond angling though, and my recent books have been written for anyone interested in nature, in particular birdwatching, butterflies and the identification of animals, fish and insects that are found in the British countryside.

My 'Little Book' series is designed to provide a range of affordable and convenient reference books that can be slipped into a pocket or backpack and used for identification when you see an unfamiliar creature on a hike or ramble. They are available in Kindle format too, so they can be used with the free Kindle apps for mobile phones.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dont waste your money 21 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I regret buying this meagre e-leaflet. As a complete novice who has never yet held a rod this book told me less than i could have gleaned from Wikipedia. Dont buy it. As i rate it with one star I am cheating you, it deserves less than that.

1.0 out of 5 stars very basic 17 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very brief basic book, there are better options available particularly Alan Sefton's beginning fly fishing book. I would not buy this.
