With continuing pressure to improve water quality in the UK, some grim reading about our local river Severn has just been published by the Angling Trust - read it here. If you would like something better to read about fish and fishing, we are publishing some great new titles this year and you can make orders for Medlar books in the usual ways - directly via this website or by phone, email or post. Royal Mail strikes affecting our deliveries are still possible but posting is currently operating reasonably well. We'll let you know when any more disruptions are due. Overseas postage is still subject to delay and increased charges. Further details can be found on our Ordering page.
