‘Wato’ by Brian Watson
An autobiography by Brian ‘Wato’ Watson: a compilation of his early hunting adventures in wild Africa and other wilderness places to present day. Honoured to be asked to write a foreword for the book, Rigby’s managing director, Marc Newton recalls how Wato was one of the first to place his trust in Rigby, by placing an order for a .416 while in his early career working for Paul Roberts – a long-standing affection for Rigby that continues to this day.
Referred to as a ‘Salty-dog Aussie’, Wato is a passionate elephant hunter, but in reading his memoires you will discover that this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his range of shooting and hunting experiences.
Having led a remarkable life, his book documents it with characteristic wit, warmth and attention to detail. Great hunting yarns, told by a true original who has lived life, pour yourself a nip of Rigby Single Malt Whisky, pull up a comfortable chair and get ready for hours of entertainment reading adventures from a colourful life.
