Yorkshire, God’s Own Country, has spawned some real household names down the years … from Harold Wilson to Michael Palin, Diana Rigg to the Arctic Monkeys, etc, etc.. But there is only one TOMMY PICKERING.
And now you can order the hardback book that the angling world has been waiting for since it was announced in the spring.
BORN TO WIN is a roller-coaster ride through the life of the man, the myth, the angling legend that is quite simply … TOMMY PICKERING.
In his unmissable new autobiography, the Barnsley Blacks legend reveals, alongside inspirational stories of success and breaking records, just why:
Denis White got a ‘Proper Monk On’ on the River Bann
Tommy got a ‘Gret Big Monk On’ over his all-time sporting hero Sir Geoffrey Boycott
5 x World Champion Alan Scotthorne got such a ‘Giant Monk On’ that he stormed over to Tommy and shoved a finger his nose during a European Championships practice session
An Italian crowd got a ‘Massive Monk On’ when Keith Hobson lost his budgie smugglers in a diving board disaster at the World Club Championships
A ‘Brian Blessed lookalike’ Hungarian border guard developed a ‘Whopping Gret Monk On’ when Tom tried to get a van load of groundbait from Hungary into Slovenia
Why an Italian crowd got a ‘Mountain Sized Monk On’ when Alan McAtee called ‘foul’ when an Italian angler broke the rules playing a carp at the world championships on the River Arno
Alan Taylor almost cost Tommy his England place after getting a ‘Doncaster-sized Monk On’ over a practical joke involving his new seatbox.
