COARSE ANGLING WATERS. By David Tipping.

1988 1st edition. 8vo (142 x 222mm). Pp160. B/w photographs, illustrations. Blue cloth, spine titled in gilt.

Chapters on different waters. Claydon catfish, Nidd barbel, Wharfe roach, chub, grayling and pike and various stillwaters for carp, tench, perch and eels. "A quarter of a century of angling has seen David Tipping travel the length and breadth of the UK, fishing successfully for all the common freshwater species along with some rarities such as char and powan. In this, his first book, he recounts his experiences on eight contrasting waters. Coarse Angling Waters captures the atmosphere of coarse fishing in its diversity: wild gravel-pit nights of wind and rain, misty tench-pool dawns, frost-bitten winter days trotting a float down swirling currents and baking-hot June afternoons stalking carp among weed and rushes. There is the euphoria of a giant catfish safely landed, and the despair of an epic, but unsuccessful struggle against a mystery fish on a small chalk stream. This is not a dry, instructional manual - the author makes no pretence that it was written for any reason other than to entertain - yet there can be few coarse anglers who will fail to learn from his thinking approach to the sport." A good, readable book with an unfortunately uninspiring title.
