    There are still plenty of good angling books around if you hunt the bookshops diligently.

    I have a big angling library, with a few tomes well over the £250 mark. But most prized of all are Gravel Pit Angling and Come Fishing With Me by my old mate Pete Stone, GPA signed by him. I don't care what they're worth - my kids can sell them but not while I breathe.

    Actually people I'm after the following to complete my collection of Walker books.

    "Still Water Angling" - first edition 1953 by Richard Walker in absolute mint condition, no finger marks, no foxing, no scuffing, no damage to dust jacket, and spine to be completetly intact, like new!

    £10 awaits the lucky owner of this book. I will pay postage too.

    Don't all contact me at once.

    Add two noughts and you might get lucky. I found a 1st edition listed with DJ for £150 but not mint.

    I've got a second edition!

    I am after the very first edition - signed of course. The one with the chapter on trout. The one with the photo of the huge Eastern European carp and the 5lb Dutch "roach" which was in fact a hybrid.

    I know where such a copy exists, but the owner wants £2k or it!!

    The same owner also has a first day signed copy of "Where the Bright Waters Meet" by Plunkett-Greene, and, wait for it, a first review edition of "The Hobbit" by JRR Tolkien!

    WTBWM must be worth £5k in anyone's money, The Hobbit? Well at a top auction house in London it might achieve a million!!

    I'll give you a clue, the owner is not British and the two books reside south of the equator.
