    Hi all,

    Any recommendations of a fairly decent but lightweight book on Britain's Freshwater Fishes? I'd like one with some easy ID tips and a bit of background on species etc., as opposed to a major academic work...

    Also - anyone know of any waterproof slates out there?

    Thanks!

    Don't know my self but an old member here Jack Perks would be the man to ask if contactable. He made the tv a few times with his filming of fresh water and river fish.

    I've a slate I've use once in years. Pm me an address and it's yours.

    A book of wet notes is good. Means you've lots of pages rather than a single slate. Obviously depends on what you are doing: a wrist mounted slate is great for an immediate reference for way points or runtimes.
