From Maggot Boy To MillionaireBy Roger Surgay
At 22, Roger Surgay had no job, no qualifications, a wife and three children to support, a dog that could eat for England and a hole in his shoe.
But 25 years later he sold his fishing tackle business empire for £3m, went to work for one of Britain's biggest retail chains, was on the board of directors in two years, and then gave that up to start an entirely new business that has dwarfed all of his earlier achievements.
It's a journey that has taken him around the world, led to his rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous and come close to costing him his life on two occasions, all due to his eye for an opportunity, his willingness to work and his love of fishing.
Forces Of NatureBy Oz Holness
Forces of Nature is an absorbing insight into the world of Oz Holness, a man with a passion for the outdoors. He thrives on personal challenge and his descriptive and entertaining narrative takes the reader on a journey through ten years of his angling life as he relives some of his inspirational captures. Oz's path into the world of carp angling was carved during the late '80s, when he took inspiration from the many dedicated carp anglers on the Kent scene, and then went on to pursue, and catch, the historic Kent Mirror, 'She', cementing the road toward his many future adventures. Oz is undoubtedly an angler with soul.
Spending 20-plus years as a firefighter taught Oz to be a humble man; never one to shout about his achievements, he is always there for his family and friends, and lives a life of subtle yet uncompromising balance. Oz Holness has kept it as real as it gets, with a 'no frills' approach to some of the hardest pits in the land, and he's achieved his goals with integrity - 'heart and soul'. This is 'Forces of Nature' - enjoy!
