Book Description

This full colour illustrated guide to carp fishing contains everything the beginner needs to know, from buying the right tackle and choosing the best type of carp water for a beginner, to the tackle, baits and techniques that will make you a successful carp angler.

Fully illustrated chapters explain tackle and bait, with diagrams and instructions for making carp rigs, advice on casting and how to play, land and safely release carp.

Tactics for catching stillwater and river carp are covered, together with tips for stalking, night fishing, long stay sessions and winter carp fishing.

Like any sport carp fishing takes time and practice to learn, but if you pick the right fishery and approach it correctly using the information in this book, there is every possibility that you could catch a carp on your first trip!

If you are a complete beginner and have never fished before, or you are an experienced coarse angler who wants to take up carp fishing, this book will tell you everything you need to know.

More About the Author

I was born in Oxford in 1959, but spent most of my childhood further north in the West Midlands. I am currently based in Devon in the south west of England, but still have a particular fondness for the Warwickshire and Worcestershire countryside.

I became interested in nature at a young age and spent a lot of my free time and holidays out in the fresh air walking and fishing with friends. I've lived, worked, walked and fished over many parts of Britain and that early interest has developed into a fascination for the natural world.

As well as writing, I collect and restore vintage fishing tackle. I like to fish with cane rods, centrepin reels and quill floats and when I'm not writing I like nothing more than to spend a few hours on a country stream fishing and watching birds, butterflies, and other wild creatures in their natural environment.

I've been an angler most of my life, so it seemed only natural that the subjects of my first books would be coarse and fly fishing and the making and restoration of traditional fishing tackle.

My interest in the natural world goes beyond angling though, and my recent books have been written for anyone interested in nature, in particular birdwatching, butterflies and the identification of animals, fish and insects that are found in the British countryside.

My 'Little Book' series is designed to provide a range of affordable and convenient reference books that can be slipped into a pocket or backpack and used for identification when you see an unfamiliar creature on a hike or ramble. They are available in Kindle format too, so they can be used with the free Kindle apps for mobile phones.

You can contact me and find out what I'm currently working on on my website at:

Very brief and lacks detail particularly in the illustrations - or maybe they just don't work well on the Kindle edition....!
