In 2009 Avon Days and Stour Ways was launched , a book that was essentially a romp through four decades of Coarse fishing on the world famous Wessex rivers, The Hampshire Avon & Dorset Stour. A great deal of critical acclaim and praise resulted from across the angling world. A Keepnet Full of Dreams continues the same amusing, sometimes irreverent anecdotal style which proved so popular with Avon Days and Stour Ways.
In A Keepnet Full of Dreams, Kevin has continued the same style in bringing his fishing experiences up to date. The book follows the same amusing, and sometimes irreverent anecdotal style which, judging by the many letters he received proved to be so popular with Avon Days. The new book, like the previous one, is not an unrelenting catalogue of big fish captures. Once again it is essentially a story book, including an account of his first experiences carp fishing abroad.
Dave Steuart, having read Avon Days in 2009 told Kevin it was one of the best angling books he had ever read and warned him he would never write a better book, or even come near it. Yet in his foreword to Kevin's new book A Keepnet Full of Dreams Dave tells us he was wrong! Another friend, Rae Borras who wrote the earlier foreword to Avon Days tells us in his foreword to the new book that "there is a passion which seeps through every sentence of his writing."
In 2020 Kevin added a collection of Poetry to his titles "The Lost Fisherman & Other Poems" which although greatly inspired by the landscapes he fishes in, is not actually a fishing book. Unlike his first two books which were self published, Kevin does not market this book himself but on the Orders & Payment page of this site there is a link to the publishers site. It is also available from book shops such as Smiths, Waterstones and online sites like Amazon.
