From the cover: “Carp fishing is addictive and 50,000 anglers hunt this extraordinary beast. In what is perhaps the most comprehensive book ever written on carp angling, Andy Little explains the immense magnetism surrounding the species which has driven some anglers to spend their entire lives in its pursuit. This is essentially a practical book with some general chapters on tackle, rigs and baits, and other more specialist chapters on the likes of winter fishing, conservation and continental carping.

Andy Little has enlisted the help of two further experts in their fields. Jan Wenczka, the best stalking carp angler this country has ever produced, has contributed a chapter on stalking, the eyeball-to-eyeball method of stalking carp, and Chris Ball, a traditionalist at heart who gets great enjoyment from using almost antique tackle, describes how to catch carp on the surface.

As well as the practical, there is plenty in this book for the armchair angler. The book is full of carp-fishing tales and anecdotes and the large number of photographs and line-drawings enliven the text and help clarify many of the points raised.

This is a book for today’s carp angler, bringing together in one volume every aspect of the sport. Andy Little is passionate about all types of carp fishing and is conscious of the responsibility that today’s angler has for the enjoyment of those to come. A recurring theme of the book is therefore where carp angling is going towards the end of the 20th century.

Whether you are a dedicated carp angler or someone new to the sport, pick up this book and prepare to be entertained, educated and inspired to catch another, perhaps even larger, prize.”
