An excellent book which is very good value for money. The book is in two clear parts, one for carp and one for tench. Both sections are well structured giving step-by-step guidance on all aspects of fishing for carp & tench, from breeding habits to location; from tackle and techniques to baits and rigs. John Wilson has a clear style which gives either the specialist or weekend angler as much information as they need without blinding them with science.

I have just begun carp fishing and found this book to be a very clear and well written introduction to an increasingly complex and bewildering game of hide and seek. In particular, I liked the rig drawings which were easy to understand and reproduce. I have one major complaint, not aimed at the author. I have had my book for about three weeks and it has almost completely fallen to pieces. It is very poorly bound with pages lifting out and badly curled covers. Such a shame. Is there a hardback version I wonder.

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 !!!

Yes, I enjoyed this book. It has a lot of tips and is a good read for those who may be wishing to begin the journey on specific fish. Not too sure it is for the enthusiast who already has a knowledge in the areas of carp and tench. I liked the individual section although thought some of the duplicated areas could have been combined with areas of difference highlighted i.e. rigs and baits
