Additional Information


A sought after classic on carp angling. The book covers a variety of techniques and baits with much on floater fishing. Several guest contributors talk about their experiences on a large variety of venues, from the huge continental waters such as Lake Cassien to small secluded British estate lakes as well as gravel pits, rivers and canals. Many guest chapters including Kevin Clifford on small waters, Ritchie Macdonald on big pits, Phil Smith on Cassien, John Cadd's own story on his Thames record, Nico de Boer on carp fishing in Holland and an interview with Fred Wilton. Many more contributors including Kevin Nash, Tim Paisley, Archie Braddock, John Nunn, Duncan Kay and more. A good book and certainly one of Bailey's best.
