"Too Many Rods is the book Derek Stritton has said he always wanted to write and charts his fishing over a fifty year period. It also records at first hand some of the major developments in carp fishing during the 1970s and 80s, including both the boilie and the 'hair rig'. He fished on a regular basis with Fred Wilton creator of the HNV baits in the 1970s and also interviewed Kevin Maddocks, credited with being co inventor of the hair rig, for membership of the British Carp Study Group in the late 1970s. The book also charts Derek's efforts to land a first thirty pound carp and the many places he visited and people he met whilst trying to achieve this. Most of all, it includes many stories of a humorous nature that he has recorded for you to enjoy, as it is these he believes stay in his memory long after the size of the fish he last caught... You can not have been around carp fishing for as long as Derek has been without having a view about how it has developed over the years and in this are he has not been backward in expressing his views if at times controversial. This is not your usual 'went here, caught that' type of book that so many people write these days, or 'this is how I tie my rigs,' but instead it charts how fishing, and carp fishing in particular has interacted with Derek's life edition was limited to only 550 numbered copies and is now out-of-print.
