A hearty pat on the back to all the contributors to our February #CrabtreeChallenge! We’ve taken your 50 word explanations of why you love fishing (on average – some were far shorter and some much longer!) and we’ve created a series of four ebooks. They’re all available here to download for free.
We’re so pleased with the results that we’ve decided to keep this one going, adding to the series as and when we get enough contributions. So, if you meant to contribute the first time and forgot, or if you’re seeing this for the first time and would love to be a part of it, just CLICK HERE and you could be in the next in the series!
