    \"The marks and photographs are fantastic, coupled with the knowledge David has of them.
    The way he talks of his Dad sounds like me talking of mine - no sadness or bitterness, only pride and happy memories of having had the time we are allowed with them.\"
    Paul Hunter

    \"........couldn\'t put it down until I\'d finished it. An excellent read and very informative.\"

    \"....a book like this can not be left on the shelf.\"
    Alan Charlton

    \"A \"must have\" book for anybody fishing that area of the N.E. coast.
    It\'s not a book just about fishing marks though - it tells the story of a young lad growing up and is peppered throughout with many humerous anecdotes. The book is a fitting tribute to Davids\' dad\"

    \"....... loads of information and I\'ve even used it as a practical field guide. I my opinion, the book is priceless......\"

      What a lovely book, written with pride and a great deal of knowledge. I am pleased to say that i knew most of the people mentioned in the book and remember them with joy and not with sadness. The book really brought these people from years agoto make it seem like yesterday. Nice one David.

          Well done David on producing a very informative and at times amusing and touching
          It dawned on me today that I have totally forgotten to thank you for including me in your book, so I will take this opportunity to say “Thanks very much David” and I hope orders go so well that you have to go to second edition

            I see so much of me and my dad in your words.

            I dont mind being the first to admit, Ive had to stop reading it a few times.

            I cant read through tears.

                  First time for ages I have picked a book up and read it from beggining to end with just one break to make a cuppa, excellent read mate.
                  Never ever met my dad, well not since I was a baby. Very special memories David.

                  Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to shoot them.

                      Got my copy last night when I got in from work. Started to read it whilst having my tea. Managed to put the book down at 01.50 this morning.
                      This book is a MUST BUY item for all shore anglers. especially those that fish the North East coast.

                      Just reading through some of these posts brings Davids book back to mind and a lump in the throat. Well done David and well done Davids Dad.

                      As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible,
                      but P*****g everyone off is a piece of cake.

                              I read half of the book at the weekend and half last night. Its great. It\'s reminded me of how pleasureable a days fishing can be and that you don\'t necessarily have to fish freezing cold pitch black winter nights and that half the fun is the scenery and anticipation. And those red cod! I\'d forgotton about those, I havn\'t caught one of them for years - because I havn\'t fished northern rock marks for years, but I will be now.

                              So cheers for the book.
