05/10/2015 - Fishing With The Famous Revisited!


Little Egret Press are proud to announce they will be publishing Fishing with the Famous – Revisited by Bob Buteux. The original is my favourite LEP book ever and I am delighted to announce that we are republishing a new and revised edition. The author Bob Buteux has contributed a wonderful new retrospective chapter looking back at the 12 years or so since the original title was published and additionally Tom O’Reilly has written a 2015 foreword to accompany the book. Robin Armstrong, who painted the picture that was used on the dust jacket of the original book, has very kindly repainted the same scene, showing the same two anglers (Bob and his best mate Bill Quinlan) but this time in a wonderfully evocative winter scene. This book will be available in a limited hardback of only 350 copies and only 10 fully leather bound copies.

As an exciting alternative for the more serious collector we are also proud to be publishing a special hardback edition of only 50 copies of this book which will feature a different dust jacket illustration. Well known angling artist Rob Woolnough has been specially commissioned to draw an original sepia portrait of Bob and this artwork will be used on the dust jacket of the special edition hardbacks. Each of these 50 books will also be housed in a custom made slipcase. Each of these books will be available to pre order via our website at later today and the books will be ready for dispatch at the end of November.

Prices as follows:

Limited Edition Hardback of only 350 Copies £29.95

Special Edition Hardback of only 50 Copies £49.00

Luxury Leather Bound Edition of only 10 Copies £185.00
