TUMBY TOM’S ANGLING ADVENTURES
When you accumulate the level of notoriety Tom has managed over the decades, it’s no surprise that celebrities like Rex hunt, Andrew Ettingshausen, Tony Lockett, Paul Kelly, Mark Ricciuto, Steve Starling, Bill Classon from The Fishing Show and Paul Worsteling have sought him out to take them fishing. If there was ever a TV show called “Fishing with the Stars”, Tom would undoubtedly be asked to host it!
But there’s a lot more to take away from “Tumby Tom’s fishing Adventures” than simply a catalogue of fishing memories and exciting tales. Whether he intended to or not when he began putting the book together, Tom has included a wealth of angling knowledge and countless tips to make readers better anglers. You don’t get to fish as successfully as he has for more than 60 years without building a vast knowledge bank, and this aspect alone is worth picking up a copy. I know that I learned a lot more than expected while editing the original text.
