A year in the life of a Norfolk river valley; its tributaries, lakes and pits, and the river itself. Fishing for roach, carp, pike etc. "The author, John Bailey, tells of a year in his life when he and a friend fished and studied the waters intensively. The result is a book for the angler / naturalist, one that examines both the natural history of the waters and advanced fishing techniques in great depth. Huge specimens of all the coarse fish species are pursued and many, but not all, are caught. ...The book also looks at the life of the valley above the waterline. The laughter and tears of the anglers, their fueds with an eel netter, encounters with wildlife and the understanding of the country community all combine to make this a book of great warmth and scope." Chapters include: Seasonal changes; Start of the year; Valley carp; Valley river; Marshland life; Valley predators; Valley pools; The year ends.
