JW Martin images/pictures?

Post by Badger1 » Thu Aug 07, 2014 8:25 am

Hello all,

Bit of a long-shot this as J.W. Martin seems to be an enigma in many ways but does anyone have any images other than the standard book images you occasionally see with him sat with shotgun, rod and a young lad with a net?

Or maybe photos you think could be him? Very few seems pictures seem to survive considering he was in the tackle trade and seems to have been reasonably successful.

Many thanks

There is one picture in this thread but not sure if it is a cut down of the picture you mention.

A shot of the great man fishing for Barbel and/or Chub. He looks a real character.

The photograph is from his book Barbel and Chub fishing and is the same as appears alsewhere in the forum.

Thanks Gents, yes those are the ones you can usually find. I'm surprised there are not more really but hay-ho. Yes he certainly looks a proper character!
