The rediscovered diary of the legendary angler's 1981 summer spent trying to catch a mythical fish.
About the Author
Chris Yates is an author and photographer but most famously a fisherman. He was first inspired by the discovery of a monster carp in his village pond when he was five. Almost thirty years later, he caught a fifty-one and a half-pound carp – the biggest fish ever caught in England – using a split cane rod at Redmire. He went on to write about his experiences in books, in his own magazine, in radio programmes and in the BBC2 series A Passion for Angling. He lives in south Wiltshire.

Prior to seeing the excellent and well known TV series with Bob James I hadn't heard of this man (I'm not a carp fisher as Carp are fairly rare here in Scotland) but his adherence to antique tackle was a quirk I found very interesting as portrayed on the TV show as I'm a bit of an antique myself and do enjoy using old tackle when possible..
you will be transported to a point in time where things were much simplier and where chris has choosen to stay in his fishing tackle a nice dip into times past. enjoy .
