I don't think the Rochdale Cowboys signature will make much difference.
He offered to sign one for me at the BFFI, but being a tight wad I refused and ordered one from Amazon.

I can't remember where I got mine from, it was already signed though.
Perhaps be worth more if it had the paw print from his horse Fido.

I know the first editions have become popular, but that's a hell of a price in eight years.

I found this out last year when i went to buy another one for a friend in the USA, needless to say my signed copy is now under lock & key with my other non expensive at time of buying, but now ridiculous priced books..

It's $96 to $241 on this side. It's a good book and could have been so much better.

An auction for one of these books has just finished on eBay.
5 bidders and finally sold for £51.

This would perhaps suggest that the market is not yet ready for the prices quoted above

Whoever pays even £50 for this book needs there head examined. Why on earth they are listed at circa £200 is beyond me. Anyone buying it at that price must be thoroughly disappointed. Be wiser to get a copy of Brook & River Trouting by Edmunds and Lee or The North Country Fly by Robert Smith. Much better books imo.

My thinking was the high prices where because it was no longer in print so folk where chancing their arm, iv'e had the book and it is worth about £15.....maybe a touch more if its a signed copy.

By the way, you can pretty much view the book and print it off here -
