I bought this book primarily for its coverage of Tench fishing . I have to say I haven't been disappointed by any of the advice John gives on Tench fishing and I've thoroughly enjoyed the half of the book devoted to Carp fishing . John writes in his warm , informative , style throughout , which is a pleasure to read . The book is beautifully illustrated with excellent photos and a really first-rate selection of diagrams . A great book from the ever dependable Mr.Wilson !!!
