December has finally arrived - crisp and cold here and with the rivers fining down should be perfect for a bit of long trotting for grayling . . . and if that doesn't tickle your fancy then stay in and get the Christmas puddings on the go! While you are waiting for them to mature, how about sitting by the fire and reading about fish and fishing - we've published some great new titles this year and you can make orders for Medlar books in the usual ways. Royal Mail strikes seem to be behind us and the mail is currently operating reasonably well. Further details on postage can be found on our Ordering page.
