Congratulations to our author Tony Baws who, at the age of 83, has been awarded the degree of Master of Arts in Creative Writing (with distinction) by Teesside University.
It is testament to his excellent writing which you can enjoy in his book, Fishing with Harry (book royalties are donated by the author to Cardiac Risk in the Young.
'Harry, an incorrigible, engaging and dapper biscuit salesman in his forties, ex-Army and the City, becomes the unlikely angling companion of young Tony, the love-struck, shy 19-year-old accountant who is courting his step-daughter. With huge excitement and more than their share of mayhem and mishap, they cast their lines wherever fish are to be found (or not, as the case may be!).
At times touching, at times bawdy, always amusing – this is a book not just for anglers but for anyone who enjoys a finely-told story.'
