BIG FISH. By Trevor Housby.

CARP AND THE CARP ANGLER. By George Sharman. With contributions from Rod Hutchinson, Fred Wilton and Chris Yates.

(1980) later reprint. 8vo (142 x 222mm). Pp303. B/w photographs and illustrations. Black boards, spine titled in gilt.

"The book is divided into two parts. The first section deals with catching the fish and waterside techniques, with particular reference to weedbed fishing, winter carp fishing, feeding and behaviour patterns. The second part of the book is devoted to the life cycle of the fish. Chapters on birth, growth, scale-reading, breeding, longevity, food supplies and sense organs are included and there is the most up-to-date and authoritative information on tackle, lines, hooks and baits. In compiling this book George Sharman has sensibly drawn on the experiences of other well-known carp anglers including Rod Hutchinson, Fred Wilton and Chris Yates." The book remains an excellent reference to this day as well as simply being a good read, with interesting chapters on Woldale and Redmire.
