Angler’s Paradise is one of the best known fisheries in the UK, built and owned by the colourful character Zyg Gregorek. This book is a fantastic tribute to the lakes, fish, customs, friends, inhabitants and history of this very special place. Many great anglers have fished at Angler’s Paradise, which is reflected by the impressive contributions to this entertaining book. Fishers such as Rod Hutchinson, Peter Mohan, Keith Arthur, Bill and Virgina Rushmer, Bob Roberts, Des Taylor, Jason Cann, Len Gurd, Rob Maylin, Graeme Pullen, Julian Chidgey, Jim O’Donnell, Zyg and Zenia Gregorek, as well as many others.

From the Foreword by Peter Mohan...

One day in the spring of 1981, my telephone rang... Both the caller and his subject were unusual - a gentleman with a slightly foreign accent who wanted some help, as he’d bought a 5 acre hole in the ground – an empty lake, in the wilds of Devon. Would I go and have a look at it?

As it happened, I knew the lake; it had a huge leaking earth dam at one end, there had been no water in it for 100 years, and the locals said the dam could never be repaired. A few days later, I drove from Bristol to Okehampton, and then up the pretty road towards Hatherleigh... After ‘proceeding’, as the police used to say, down a long, rough track, full of watery potholes, I got near the end of the track where there was a large house, with numerous outbuildings surrounding it. The owner was in the garden: Polish and called Zyg. It was immediately apparent that he was an unusual character. It turned out that he owned only half the house, a wet, steeply sloping field – and the empty lake, with the base of an old boathouse. I told him what the locals said. He looked at me with a steely glare.

"I’m going to fill it", he said simply. "And make it into a fishery".

Angler’s Paradise is 150 pages long, 255 x 175mm in dimension. It is lavishly decorated with mono and colour photographs, and is richly illustrated throughout by Tom O’Reilly. The royalties from this book will be donated to a charity chosen by Zyg.
