J.W. Martin, 8 Seymour Street, Euston Square, London N.W

Once upon a time in Arcadia, on the day of the week known as Thursday in the year of Our Lord and Natural Causes 1906, ladies and gentlemen wanting to buy tackles or books from J.W. Martin a.k.a 'The Trent Otter' were able to do so directly from the author and dealer himself at 8 Seymour Street, Euston Square in the district of London N.W.   There, you could buy a 1st Edition of Practical Fishing for the So-Called Coarse Fishes or buy Centre-Pin, Pike and Plain Reels from 1/6 to 16/- each.

Today in the year of Our Lord and Other Curses 2013 on the day of the week known as Thursday, ladies and gentlemen may revive the art of buying directly from the author, as I stall out on the cloth at Spitalfields Antiques Market, Commercial Street, London District E.1. and where I sell Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul, including items such as were peddled by The Trent Otter himself and where also, if you ask, you may buy surviving and rare 1st Edition copies of my own book 'For All Those Left Behind' (Mainstream 2002).   Thank-you.
