"Avon Days and Stour Ways is a story of one man's obsession with these two delightful rivers which wind their way to the sea where they meet at Christchurch Harbour. Different in character and mood, both Wessex rivers can provide fantastic fishing for some of the largest specimen barbel, carp, chub, dace, perch, pike and roach swimming in UK waters." "Since concentrating his efforts on these two venues Kevin Grozier has recorded a list of specimen fish which few could match. However, Kevin gets so much more from fishing and the stories in this book, from the early seventies to the present day, show this to the full." Chapters include: To begin with; Trial and error; Barbel; Stour magic, by Ian Davis; First and last, by Alan King; Bream; Carp; Anyone for carp, by Chris Ball; Chub; Perch; Pike; Hampshire Avon pike, by Mark Callaway; Roach; Off the beaten track, by Dave Howes; Reflections; Post Script. "As a chronicle of specimen hunting on the Avon and Stour in the late 20th century and early 21st century, I don't think this book has an equal. The supporting text, by some of the area's finest anglers of their time, contributes to what is a superb read." Rae Borras.
