An Urchin Remembers by Bob Buteux

Coming soon from The Little Egret Press http://www.littleegretpress.com/

From the foreword by Tony Meers:

"All who read this book will get a clear insight into the early life of a great angler. It starts in 1929 when Bob was born and meanders its way through his school days to fishing the Old Lea for Stone Loach and Christmas in the early 1930s. Bob then takes you through the war years, after his National service, ending in the halcyon days at The Royalty and Southill Park, with so much more in-between."

An Urchin Remembers is the perfect addition to Bob’s library of previous titles – Fishing with the Famous – The Life and Times of Bill Quinlan – Times to Remember volumes I & II – Full Circle and his most recent book Royalty Days!

This book will be available in the following editions:

Limited Edition Hardback of only 300 numbered copies £24.95

Special Edition Hardback of only 40 numbered copies featuring an alternate dust jacket £39.95

Quarter Leather Bound Edition of only 10 copies, hand bound by Ludlow Bookbinders and presented within a slipcase £95.00

Luxury Leather Bound Edition of only 10 copies, presented within a slipcase and hand bound by Ludlow Bookbinders £195.00

my thoughts also, I have known Bob for a long time, back to the days on the Royalty, when I and my friends were to shy to speak with the great man, he was well above our angling skills in those days.
