The Spirit of the Pond

The Spirit of the Pond

by Tom O'Reilly

The Little Egret Press is proud to re-publish this now classic tale, ten years after it was first published.

It has a new foreword by John Bailey, a new introduction and last chapter, plus photos from the period and poems.

Tom O'Reilly is a passionate angler. Since he was a small child he has been fishing in the ponds and rivers of his native Cornwall, initially accompanied by his father who first taught him how to fish and, later, alone. School holidays passed quickly as he watched the pond near his home change with the long summers days and as the tally that went into his net grew ever larger.

Since those balmy summer days, his fishing repertoire has widened to other fish and other places, but his love for the first pond has remained constant.

The Spirit Of The Pond is the story of a love affair both with angling and with the rural world.

"......The Spirit of the Pond will always be cherished. He has created something that time will never tarnish." From the foreword by John Bailey

It is a limited edition of just 495 copies of which 25 are fully bound in leather.

All copies will be signed by the author and illustrator Tom O'Reilly

The full leather bindings are limited to 2 per customer and are signed by both the author and illustrator.
