"In this book we have put together a mix of articles selected from the Group's magazine, 'The Carp', together with specially written articles by members and extracts from the Group's Rotary Letters. We have tried to strike a balance between technical subjects and carp fishing stories, and our problem has been not so much what to include but what to leave out."
