Pat Stevens talks to Peter Hayes and Rob Smith at the launch of Rob's book - The North Country Fly: Yorkshire's Soft Hackle Tradition at the BFFI last weekend.
We had a very enjoyable and successful show - meeting lots of old (and new) friends, and we had a terrific response to the new soft-hackle book.
We were also joined by Neil Patterson who was signing our copies of his classic book, Chalkstream Chronicle. It was great to meet him after having known of him for many years. Neil has a new book, Flyfisher's Chronicle, coming out next week. Although we didn't receive the books in time for the show, Neil is signing some book-plates so that we can send personalised copies out to our customers next week.
