"This fascinating book traces the life story of a carp from conception until it reaches record size, recounting the numerous adventures and discoveries made by the fish as it moves round the dark, quiet lake in which it lives. Running parallel with the carp's development is the story of a young angler, who watched the exciting spawning of the carp, and who spends much of his time observing and trying to catch Cypry, the shoal leader conceived that day. The history of the lake is carefully woven into the story, along with detailed descriptions of the activities of many other creatures which exist in and around the beautiful stretch of water. The author has been a carp angler for 40 years, has fished more than 100 carp lakes and caught 3000 carp to 30lbs. His thousands of hours fishing for the species all over the country have given him a unique opportunity for nature observations, and he has written four other books on carp and carp fishing.This book, however, is not primarily about fishing, but is a story of the countryside and its wild inhabitants, in all moods and weathers. It makes absorbing reading for lovers of nature and wild creatures whether they are anglers or not".
