    I have fished and tied Spiders for over fifty years and are simple to tie but deadly.

    Various persalls silks and snipe, woodcock, partridge hackles and a mole skin and a block of cobblers wax.

    Lots of videos on Youtube.
    I think the Rob Smiths book is much better VFM, the guy has proper credentials unlike the Rochdale Cowboy.

    S.
    I've been following that book on amazon for a few years now, all the uk based copies offered at 1000+ GBP have gone and there were about 4. This was over two years ago.
    It was offered on there by a uk book seller whom I doubt retracted the copy. I do follow a lot of rare fly fishing and gunmaker books.
    If they don't sell after about 7 years they will lower the offering price. Unless they've sold I've not seen one being removed from auction.
    Amazon book sellers are in it for the money and they ain't daft.

    This books appears to be selling otherwise they would lower the price not up it.

    Why else do you explain that the American sellers upped their price? With one copy offered at nearly 8000$ now.
    I follow these things religiously.

    I've got the coch-y-bonddu book which might head in the same direction, it's got 100 pages more.

    Good offer Steve, I’ve owned two, first I swapped in a deal on here for something, second I bought as part of five books, I only wanted one but took the others to secure the deal.
    I sold the second on eBay, start price 99p it went for £40.

    I have read and collected books on north county spider fishing for quite some years .I remember looking at that book and dismissing it as another jump on the band wagon book, everything in it had been said before. It's never worth that money imo.

    I know Ged, it was three times what I paid, I was praying he didnít accept it.

    I wonder who is responsible for changing an item from depreciation to highly collectable?
