Based in the beautiful countryside of Shropshire, all Medlar books are designed, typeset and printed in the UK using high quality sustainable paper and inks.

Classic Angling Books

To celebrate 25 years of publishing we have updated and rebound many of our angling classics -
and most of them are now in stock. Remember - you can reserve a copy of any forthcoming

We continue to wish all our customers well in these trying times. Despite the appalling state of the economy following on from the Brexit debacle, an ongoing war in the Ukraine and the continuing Covid crisis hitting everyone hard, we are still open! You can make orders as usual for Medlar books. Royal Mail deliveries in the UK are currently operating as normal, but overseas postage is still subject to delay and increased charges and we have had to amend our rates to reflect this. Further details can be found on our Ordering page.
