Limited first edition hardback of 50 YEARS ON THE OUSE by Tony Miles and published by Little Egret Press, Cornwall in 2007. Illustrated by Tom O'Reilly. Signed by Miles and O'Reilly on the limitation page (also signed again by Miles with the inscription "All the best and tight lines" on the half title page). This is number 147 of 895 copies printed.
The book is in very good condition (green cloth boards with gold lettering/design to front) with only minor wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (light creasing/rubbing to edges). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.
This is a book about Tony's half century of fishing the middle to upper reaches of his beloved Great Ouse, since he first set foot on its banks in 1957. Contained within these pages are the highlights of that part of Tony's angling life spent searching for the specimen fish of one of the best rivers in the land.
Here are the accounts of countless battles with giant chub, encounters with elusive roach and monster perch and the almost religious zeal in pursuit of the now legendary barbel of Adams Mill and Kickles Farm. In more recent years, Tony takes us with him also in his searches for big carp and tench.
As Tony himself says, there is a lifetime's love affair within this book, a book you will find hard to put down. You are invited to share the highs and lows, the disappointments and successes, and some of the lighter moments along the way. Without a doubt, Tony is one of our leading angling writers, and his graphic style takes us on a journey when we can actually feel the chill of a misty dawn, stare in wonder at a star spangled night sky or gaze in awe at a dazzling sunset.
203 pages, illustrated with numerous photographs and drawings
