Default A Guide to Tying North Country Flies Mike Harding.

There was a thread about this book a couple of years back regarding the price.
I've just answered a thread on here making reference to the book, but when I looked online for a link I couldn't find a used copy for under £142.
I know the first editions have become popular, but that's a hell of a price in eight years.

It's a bargain on abebooks at £117.11 !
It's not a first edition though
I guess I'll be crossing that one off my Christmas list sadly !

I would make you an offer but after all this talk you would be better leaving it to your ancestors, after a few more years they might be able to use it as a down payment for a mortgage !

My copy with "Tight Lines. Mike Harding" on the inside. Back cover has £14.99 printed on it. I wonder if the decimal point has been slipping again!

Mike Harding was signing them at the BFFI Ged for £14.99 I think, but Amazon were doing them for £9.99.
