The First Book concerning Carp Fishing History of Kent....
Compiled by Chris Haswell - Edited & designed by Mike Starkey
Carp fishing in Kent goes back sixty-five years or more - if one includes the monasteries, monks and wildies, some hundreds of years.
The Kent River Board - as it was in the fifties, had the foresight to stock a number of Kent waters with carp from the UK and Italy. As far as the fish are concerned the rest is history. From the fifties a new type of angler started to emerge after the writings of Richard Walker appeared and his capture of an immense common from Redmire Pool.
The pioneers from Kent came to the fore soon after, because the fish were on their doorsteps and they found them.
So from the sixties up to the eighties, Kent was a hotbed of all things to do with carp. New methods, new tackle innovations and then came the boilie. No one can doubt that along with the hair rig it revolutionised carp fishing from the eighties onwards.
This unique publication brought to you by Angling Publications is based on interviews by Tim Paisley and Jim Foster with the likes of Kevin Nash, Danny Fairbrass, Pete Springate, Rod Hutchinson, Martin Locke, Ian Chillcott, Lee Jackson, Dave Lane and Bob Davis.
Previously published in Carpworld magazine now remastered into story format, this book is a great addition to any collector's book shelf or the reader who's keen to know more about the people behind the angler.
Iain Macmillan is one of the best angling coaches around, and now he's put everything he knows on to a DVD so you can learn in the comfort of your own home! The idyllic Penn's Hall in Birmingham was the chosen venue, where there are some stunning fish to target, and it's also typical of a venue where anglers may start their carp-fishing journey.
Iain covers some of the main topics which he gets asked about on a daily basis, so things such as spooling up, rigs, lead systems, leadcore, bait, watercraft, casting, spodding, feature-finding and hardware are all covered in-depth. In fact, throughout this DVD there are many topics covered, on such a wide spectrum, that no angler can fail to learn from this production.
