Derek 'The Don' Ritchie recalls his fifty years of angling memories." This flamboyant and, dare I say, eccentric carp angler with his love of trance and electronic music, clubbing and laser light shows at the water's edge has dominated most of the southern waters he has fished, so don't be fooled into thinking that his loud music has detracted from his catches - far from it! Derek is as keen these days on his carp fishing as he has ever been whether it be here in his native UK or the many waters in Europe that he has conquered. I have been telling Derek for a number of years that he should have written a book, or probably two books, with the amount of fishing he has done. Finally he has done just that, and within the pages of this book you will hear, for the first time anywhere, Derek's wonderful life story of carp fishing. ...This book covers fifty years of fishing, from the very early days in Essex on the top waters of his day, his legendary days on the Manor and Cleverley, right up to his current angling at the Rise and abroad. It's filled with history, hilariously funny from start to finish and without a doubt the book of the year! So, sit back, put your feet up with a cold beer and read up about England's most flamboyant, fun loving and all round great bloke, Derek 'the Don' Ritchie... Get it on with the Don!"
