Format: Paperback
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
