This is the sequel to the great man's autobiography, Fly Fishing by J.R.Hartley. "Our hero is back, recalled to rummage once more in the creel of reminiscence". "...Will appeal to everyone, even [especially?] those who have never held a rod". And all who remember that advert. "In the Yellow Pages TV advert, first shown in 1983, he was seen phoning second-hand bookshops in pursuit of a copy of Fly Fishing by J.R. Hartley. The payoff came when he tracked down a copy, asking for it to be reserved and revealed that he was the author." Daily Mail obituary for Norman Lumsden 30-11-2001. Norman Lumsden played the author in the TV advertisement. It was so popular that writers Russell and Lapsley were commissioned to provide a text for this, up-to-then fictitious, book.
