Hello All,

For those sufficiently interested, the 'Official' launch of Bob Buteux's new book 'Royalty Days' is this coming Saturday, 13th January 2018. The event is free to all & scheduled to begin at 12-midday, right on the banks of the Royalty Fishery itself, in Christchurch.

From what I gather, this will prove a very popular and well-attended event, including, of course, the man himself, Bob Buteux. So, a good chance to get him to sign your copy.

Hope to see some of you there.

Regards, Len.

Great read, I look back with fondest to the old days getting cold and wet on two wheels, wearing a checked cap, fly jacket and boots, numbed hands but I wouldn't have changed it for anything. The B&W pics are iconic not to be missed, well done Bob on a wonderful read and taking me back in time. "Wonderful"

I have now finished the book Royalty Days, certainly a great read that took me back in time when we described some of those big names of the past as Mr Bill Warren, Mr Sonny Warren, Mr Bob Buteux, and a handful of others ,who we discussed in reverend tones. These people were the ones who made us want to go out and catch bigger than average fish, often know as Specimen Hunters, I fully recommend this book to fellow TFF members

I've been reading it and particularly enjoyed reading Pete Cranstoun's contribution.

I do wish, however, that Little Egret would employ a decent editor and proof reader, and sort out a 'house' style. Parts of the book (Len's contribution was fine) need a lot of work. And someone tell LEP that you clamber over a stile not a style!
