After ten years of earnest scribbling and a lifetime of international experience, this project has finally appeared in book form! And it is another superb Medlar volume, if I say so myself.

Book launches were held at Eurobook in Valladolid, Spain, and at the Kirkdale Bookshop, Sydenham in London, with both events being successful.

Anyone interested in obtaining a copy now will be best served by contacting Medlar Press directly or by popping along to either of those bookshops. I am more than delighted to sign copies at either of those bookshops but may need plenty of notice, via Facebook.

Huge thanks to everyone for their support.

The burbot! Who'd've guessed? A brand spanking new book all about the burbot, a veritable Lota lota encyclopedia plus, of course, how to catch them! Not easy when the species is officially extinct in the UK but... it thrives elsewhere.
