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.
