A new paperback edition of this sought-after and innovative carp-fishing book. "Bearing in mind that this book was written some twenty-five years back, it is far from dated, Rod's ideas and logic apply to fishing whatever the date, just the smallest of adjustments is needed to bring it all up to current trends. In those early days the tackle he used was basic to his needs, as long as it performed as it was meant to, he saw no reaon to change, his concentration being more on his bait which was in its day highly technical, and was also responsible for bringing the particle bait approach into the open. Rod was influenced in the sixties by Fred Wilton's high protein pastes and experimented further with fishmeal baits and explains in layman's terms how he went about using the chemicals now commonplace in modern carp baits. A highly successful angler is naturally a happy man, as was Rod." (Bob Buteux, in the Foreword to the 2005 edition). Without doubt one of the best carp angling writers and this, in it's original edition, is perhaps his hardest book to find. As ever with Rod, the author mixes good solid practical information with well-written carp angling tales. Chapters include: Location of carp; Tackle and tactics; Introduction to baits; Particle baits; Paste baits; When it all comes right; The unexplained; Snag fishing; Carp in winter; Ambition achieved; A never-to-be-forgotten evening; Large carp waters; Postscript; Dear Rod. from Chris Yates; A short interview with the author; When it all goes wrong; Carp fishing in the future; In conclusion. The publisher originally intended to produce this edition in both hardback and paperback formats, however, the hardback edition was never actually issued.

Also available by Rod Hutchinson: The Carp Strikes Back and Carp Now and Then.
