As with all of Chris's writings and Dvd's there is always something to enjoy. Despite one idiotic comment about learning nothing this is a superb Dvd. There are no claims made that this is a tutorial BAH!. Chris does not impose the do's and dont's of fishing on anybody. What's more he never ever has! However take the time to watch his Dvd's or read his books though and the real Chris unravels. I have fished beside him many times through his Dvd's and books. Like myself Chris just loves 'being there.' He loves peace, quiet, solitude and nature. Above this he likes catching fish, particularly Carp. Chris as i, prefers to use vintage fishing tackle. Split cane rods aluminium maggot tins old Abu Cardinal or Ambidex reels, quill floats and basic ledger set ups. What could be less offensive. Not a Dvd for the commercial Carp haulers, tackle tarts, all the gear no idea types and beered up bivvy boys. This Dvd as all Chris's Dvds and books are aimed at the oft' forgotten art of true angling. Now then Mr Yates when are you going to invite me to Jade Lake!
